Llawr i'w golli: Y cynnydd £20 yr wythnos yn y Credyd Cynhwysol

In a report launched on 10th August 2021, CHC called on the UK government to reconsider plans to cut Universal Credit by £20 per week from October. You can see the report here.

The £20 per week increase to Universal Credit

‘A lot to lose’ draws together data and testimony from housing association tenants across Wales, and shows that the £20 per week that was added to Universal Credit during the Covid-19 pandemic has been transformational for many households.

The report reveals that the £20 per week that was added to Universal Credit during the Covid-19 pandemic has been transformational for many housing association tenants in Wales. It has helped them to pay for essentials like food and utility bills at a time of increased financial pressure.

CHC is urging the Department for Work and Pensions not to cut this vital £20 per week. We are also calling on them to urgently communicate the specific timing of any changes to Universal Claimants to claimants. CHC is working with member housing associations to raise awareness of the planned changes among affected tenants.
