Stop & Scrap Universal Credit

#StopAndScrapUniversalCredit

Stop and Scrap Universal Credit

DPAC believes that Universal Credit has too many flaws to be simply paused and fixed – it must be stopped and scrapped. It is rotten to the core.

Universal Credit is the punishing regime due to be more widely imposed on people with low incomes both those in and out of work.

Seven million households will be affected, including over one million low paid part-time workers.

For the first time ever people in work could face being sanctioned (having their benefits stopped) if they don’t prove to the job centre that they’re searching for better paid work or more hours. Pensioner couples will also be affected if one of them is under pension age.

Universal Credit is an economic and political disaster bringing further distress and impoverishment to those forced to endure it.

To date at least £15.8 billion has been wasted on its implementation yet it will only save £1 billion to 2022.

No civilized Government should impose this on its citizens and no opposition party should want to simply pause and fix it.

DPAC is a grass roots campaign body. It was formed by a group of disabled people after the first mass protest against the austerity cuts and their impact on disabled people held on the 3rd October in Birmingham 2010, England. It was led by disabled people under the name of The Disabled Peoples’ Protest. DPAC has over 20,000 members & supporters and an outreach of over 45,000 disabled people. DPAC works with many anti-cuts groups, Universities, Disabled Peoples’ Organizations, and Unions
