Write to Your MP to Restore the £20 Lifeline

On the 6th of October, Universal Credit was cut by £20 per week, meaning the annual income of millions of families was cut overnight by £1,040. MPs need to understand the impact of this cut on people’s ability to get by.

MPs respond best to messages that are personal. We're going to ask you a couple of questions to help craft an email for you. We will not store any information you share.

Please remember to write your answers in full sentences so they make sense in the final email to your MP.


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

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

What has it meant for your ability to pay for food/rent/bills? 
How has the cut affected your physical and mental wellbeing?

Finally we need to know your postcode so we can identify your MP.
