Keep the Lifeline

Pecan is a part of the Trussell Trust’s Keep The Lifeline campaign, calling on the UK government to keep the £20 a week uplift to Universal Credit payments introduced in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, to support people on low-income.

The proposed cut is the biggest overnight cut to social welfare since World War II.

UPDATE

“On 6 October, the UK Government took £20 a week from the pockets of six million low-income families, cutting their incomes by up to a fifth as the cost of living is set to soar.

This was the biggest overnight cut to social welfare since World War II and could see 1.2m people across the UK having to skip meals just to get by.

Food banks will continue doing all they can to help people struggling to afford the essentials, but no charity can replace the dignity of having enough money to buy your own food.”
