Charities have expressed concerns about the introduction of stricter conditionality requirements for Universal Credit claimants with lead care.
The charity, Gingerbread, have published an open letter to the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt. The letter was signed by a number of charities and organisations. These include Save the Children, Pregnant then Screwed and the TUC. In the letter, they highlight that stricter conditions are ineffective.
They also point out the stress that these measures will cause for single parents, and families with additional needs.
