Bishop Rachel supports food bank petitionPlease could you consider signing the End Hunger UK’s online petition, calling on the government to ‘fix’ Universal Credit to prevent more people going hungry?

In areas where Universal Credit has been rolled out to all new claimants, food banks and other food aid providers report an average of 52% increase in the number of people visiting their food banks in the twelve months following the full roll out date and rising levels of debt, destitution and hunger.

The petition is designed to send a powerful message to the Prime Minister – it’s time to fix Universal Credit. The petition will be delivered to 10 Downing Street in the lead up to the Autumn Budget in mid-November. Please share among your church members.
