Sarah Hughes started this petition to Universal Credit and

TO ALL STRUGGLING PARENTS RELYING ON UNIVERSAL CREDIT TO STAY IN WORK!

We need more flexibility with Universal Credits “Assessment Periods” Where HMRC and DWP are claiming peoples salaries are being paid and declared twice and are therefor “not entitled to tax credits, housing and help towards nursery costs” 

I work full time with nursery fees of £1000 a month to pay families like me rely on universal credit to provide a percentage of childcare costs.

Without this help myself and thousands of hard working families are being forced to quit their jobs! Universal credit assessment periods need to be flexible to accommodate people’s monthly salaries but HMRC refuse because “computer says no” we need to get this message out there and get the system changed to help keep people in work and off the streets!


Please make sure you verify your emails when signing up and share to as many as you can!
