Uplift young women: uplift benefits
The Budget was a missed opportunity to make sure young women get the vital support they need.
Extending the £20 a week uplift in Universal Credit for just 6 months doesn't give young women security. It also fails to recognise the challenges facing those on other benefits, especially young women receiving Carer's Allowance.
Young women are calling on the government to permanently increase Universal Credit, not just for 6 months, and to increase Carer's Allowance permanently too.
