Email your MP to uprate benefits

Our new Prime Minister must keep his promise to uprate benefits in line with inflation. Failing to do so will plunge thousands more families into poverty, just as winter draws on. 

Our country is in the midst of a national emergency as the cost-of-living crisis gets worse by the day. We know the impact will be far-reaching and long-lasting. A key reason people have been struggling to stay afloat is because benefits have failed to keep up with the cost of living for years.  

It is now of paramount importance that, in the Autumn Statement, Chancellor Hunt and Prime Minister Sunak put stability first - providing reassurance to those of us on the lowest of incomes.  

Inflation is now at an unmanageable 10%. If the government don’t announce benefits uprating on November 17th, it will result in a real term cut to income and yet another financial shock to families already living in crisis.  

Join us in our call to uprate benefits to meet inflation – with no compromises.  

MPs respond best to messages that are personal. We will ask you a couple of questions to help craft an email for you. Please be assured that we do not store any information you share. 

Remember to write your answers in full sentences so your points are clearly conveyed in the final email to your MP. 

Hints: Who else is in your household? Do you have children? Are you in work? Are you disabled?

Example: My name is Julie and I am a single mother of two children, aged 4 and 2

Example: Your gas or electricity bill, rent, weekly food shop

Hints: Are you unable to heat your home sometimes? Have you had to cut back on shopping? Have you gotten behind on any payments or got into debt?
