End Hunger UK Petition

22nd July 2018

We are supporting the EndHunger UK national petition, designed to send a powerful message to the Prime Minister – it’s time to fix Universal Credit.  


We will be sending out paper copies of the petition to foodbank sessions this week – please can you make them available to people to sign.

As a matter of urgency, End Hunger UK is calling on the government to:

  • Take action to improve the flexibility and support for people on Universal Credit.
  • Make improvements to Universal Credit, to ensure it does not leave more people at risk of debt and destitution.
  • Make a long-term commitment to ensure Universal Credit provides people with enough income to afford good food on a regular basis.
