    The Labour Party Campaign to Fix Universal Credit
    The Tories’ failing Universal Credit programme is plunging millions of people into poverty, leaving them unable to pay rent or put dinner on the table, and facing debt and eviction as a result.
    The British public deserves better than this. We’re demanding that the Tories urgently pause and fix Universal Credit now.

    In the last month there has been mounting evidence that the government’s flagship social security programme, universal credit, is not fit for purpose - and Labour believes the budget is a chance to fix it.
    The original objectives of universal credit (UC) were to simplify social security support while ensuring that work always pays, and fundamentally to reduce child poverty. Labour supported these key commitments then, and we support them now.
    But UC is failing to deliver on its objectives, as we have heard from respected charities including Child Poverty Action Group, Trussell Trust, Citizens Advice and Gingerbread. Even former government advisers, civil servants and UC’s own architects are now critical of the scheme.
    The government’s social security reforms were meant to respond to the changing world of work, where labour markets are increasingly “flexible” and jobs insecure. According to the TUC, one in 10 people in the UK are in jobs that are poorly paid, precarious and short, the “low pay, no pay” cycle. In spite of the government’s mantra, for millions of people work is no longer a route out of poverty: the fact is that four out of five people in low-paid work will still be in low-paid work 10 years later.

After six weeks - you are not given enough money to pay bills and rent! The intention is that you shall not live! I am not at all surprised that there are now frequent attacks on politicians. Imagine how you would feel if your child is no longer with you down to a benefits decision!

They have cut even the social rents under the rent cap system! This is leaving people with less than £6.00 a week for food, and there's no let up for older types who have ongoing age-related health problems,. The doctors have turned their backs saying itis none of their concern. They are murderers, they have designed a system where you will die.

The evil cow couldn't give a toss, and I doubt if her replacement will either. In this country there should be no food banks! Time for the public to realise the political and civil services are paid out of the same money they claim pays for our diminished public services which is tax. Blatant liers one and all with regards to the real structure of our system which is give joe public nothing and divert the available to oneself and one's immediate party political sponsors.

accelerated modern day slavery. U.C to me seems like another scam. Perhaps those involved should be on U.C they may just understand then. I feel for the young. The authorities seem to make it look like working means financial good times. The reality is most people any where near the benefit system will generally when they least can afford it be on low income and still have to claim some benefit. How can we have a system where a house full of adults work and earn so little they still have to claim benefit at some level. This is one of the richest countries in the world it seems to me the companies are the ones receiving the benefits as they don't have to pay enough to for their employees to live on. The basic right of any one born in this country should get a reasonably comfortable roof over their head, clothes on their backs and food in their bellies working or not. working people should be shown to be at least financially well off. Before you even start on me  my wife and I have worked all our lives, brought up our children to adult hood and now are facing life's struggles with their own families (I think harder than we did) . both of us still work in jobs that should I believe be classed as semi skilled, approaching our 60's our small mortgage ends this year. Yet although in no way do we need or want benefits life still needs careful consideration out of work when we get our 1 day a week off. This is slavery in all it's glory.

I think Teresa May is talking out of her backside, she says that they want something that is simple, if you think it is simple being on Universal Credit then maybe Teresa May should try it. Then she will really see how hard it is and how it makes everybody who can't get into paid employment feel when you have to wait 6 weeks for your first payment. Her system doesn't work, it is just one big mess, I say scrap Universal Credit altogether and bring back the old system which was a lot easier. You didn't have to wait 6 months for your first payment under the old system like you have to now.

The "labour" party introduced guaranteed benefits what...back in the early 50's.... An entire generation became and remains, dependent on the government .... Sorry but labour can't call the kettle black on this.... Now....we have the same "dependent" class in America...and the same brain damaged lunatic politicians who want that class to grow because they derive power by keeping people locked in poverty... Labour party isn't any different... We here, aren't as far down that socialist nightmare road yet...

Make that the EUniversal Credit. Both Tories and Labour will comply: 'The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) role as a co-financing organisation (CFO) for European Social Fund (ESF) 2014 to 2020 is to procure and contract manage provision aimed at improving employment opportunities, promoting social inclusion helping people to fulfill their potential'  'Responsibility for managing the overall ESF element of the ESIF programme, rests with the ESF Managing Authority (MA), which is also located within DWP.' https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dwp-european-social-fund-2014-to-2020/dwp-role-as-an-esf-co-financing-organisation. Universal Credit and the European Social Fund 'LEP involvement Key points and when to bid. The DWP will continue to administer the European Social Fund (ESF) programme during the next funding period, and 2015 Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) will have an involvement in advising how the funds are spent locally. The DWP will maintain its role as Managing Authority with responsibility for the Delivery Programme and approval of projects, and will seek independent advice from local partners through the local European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) Committee as part of the decision making process. Advice on the current situation is available from the GOV.UK website. It is expected that the Operational Programme will be agreed in principle in March 2015, after which calls for proposals will be made on the Direct Gov web site. Criteria for applications : 'The overall economic and workforce development objectives of the ESF fund, and the detailed EU driven requirements in relation to evaluation, monitoring and audit will not be changing.' 'All LEPs will have published strategies which should provide a good starting point for assessing whether your particular bid proposals would match with how ESF money is likely to be committed locally.' https://www.local.gov.uk/sites/default/files/documents/universal-credit-and-euro-885.pdf

Well unfortunatelly I understand why Teresa May introduced this Universal credit, also understand hard working people whom struggling with lack of money but this system designed for immigrants whom doesn't want to assimilate with British citizens, culture and language they live in UK for decades and not bothered to learn language, giving birth after birth and relayed only on benefits SORRY but this situation makes it to happen. Before gov was giving money to the left and right and this is the result of UK government naivety and stupidity!!!! Amen

English people are quite lazy people. I worked with some in restaurant and they always thought they were better and would refuse if u tell them to do this or that. So i think uc is a kinda great way to fix them to work. I might be wrong about uc.

I was on esa because I have back and leg problems and have to have lots of pain medication due to severe pain, I had a fit for work assessment and was deemed "fit for work" which I appealed but took nearly 9months to be resolved, in the meantime I was told to go for a work capability assessment and was given a appointment nearly 15 miles away which I was told "I must attend" I explained I had no money for travel costs due to not having received a payment for over 3+ weeks due to my esa being stopped, the woman didn't care what my circumstances were and said I should of accounted for future travel costs on my last payment 3weeks ago and that I should "Walk to my appointment". These people are cruel and ruthless who work for the DWP without empathy or any sympathy for the most vulnerable in our society.
