UC needs to change

Last night I was watching a programme on channel four about the universal credit and I was really intrigued on how the Goverment has made such a error on rolling out the universal credit with people having not enough to buy basic foods and one couple had to days and weeks on very little food because of the delayed payments and I just feel that their need to be a better way so that those who are ill disabled or mental health conditions donít get sicker as result an those who declared fit also donít in a bad state and developing health issues as result of uc.

It may me realise that there needs to be a better solution



Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside.

I fully agree - Universal Credit is a joke.
It took them over 3 months to sort out a certain part of mine and countless messages between myself and them before they got their fingers out and sorted it; but it left me and my husband short of money for months and we were getting quite worried.

It's beyond ridiculous. Something needs to change.

Unite have been doing a lot of campaigning on this issue. If you are wanting to be proactive then email your stories to them.

A blogger/author/MH activist had a 42 day hunger strike to raise awareness of how long people have to wait for their UC to start. (Chris Young - walk a mile in my shoes).

And, was it Skint: Friends Without Benefits that you watched? I also watched that and was shocked and scared. It's on again tonight I think.
