Join the Scrap Universal Credit Alliance (SUCA)
SUCA is a national alliance of organisations and individuals committed to stopping and scrapping Universal Credit. Join up today!
We are building a movement to get rid of this pernicious policy which is destroying people’s lives.
Main problems with UC include:
Minimum 35 day wait for payment, which in reality is often 60 and sometimes 100 days plus
The 6 week plus wait has led to large rent arrears and evictions
Food bank use in UC areas has gone up significantly
Child hunger, particularly in school holidays
Debt - use of expensive credit has risen sharply
Mental distress – evidence of increase stress, mental health issues in rollout areas
Crisis for disabled people and people with long term health conditions
Single household payments put women and children living with domestic abuse at greater risk of harm
Single parents and working families can lose around £200 a month
Married couples with one retired and one working-age partner lose out
Mental distress and suicides rise in UV rollout areas
Sanctions leave people with no means and are a secret penal system with no recourse to justice
We are raising funds to organise leaflets, posters, billboard advertising, national lobbies of Parliament, protest and demonstrations:
