Coronavirus Benefit allowance increase
The Government announced a £20 weekly increase to Universal Credit only, I feel this discriminates against others eg, Carer's on Income Support who face the same if not greater financial difficulties during these strange times. Yesterday Matt Hancock in the daily briefing told a parent of a Special Needs child that "Extra Support" had been provided for the disabled (children). I have asked my Local MP what exactly this entails.
