Chance to Move On Campaign
Universal Credit is a lifeline that could give homeless young people the chance to move on. But because of their age, under-25s receive less support, forcing them to choose between paying the bills and putting food on the table.
The Chance To Move On campaign has already changed government policy to help homeless young people cover the rent. Now we want to make sure that, in times of crisis, young people have access to food and essentials.
In the wake of coronavirus, Universal Credit has been temporarily increased by £20 each week. The Government should keep this lifeline and go further to make Universal Credit fair for homeless young people.
