The mortgage holiday scheme ends tomorrow. Look out for new @jrf_uk research on the cliff-edge facing homeowners on low incomes. Currently people must wait NINE months for government support through SMI.😮 This must change, so people who lose their jobs don't lose their homes.

Universal Credit split in Tories as Scots party leader Douglas Ross backs £20 extension https://t.co/WavGuFKO2x
Good on @Douglas4Moray for supporting our campaign, led by @jrf_uk & @savechildrenuk @SaveChildrenSCO to save the £20pw uplift to UC, however I hope he will understand it can’t be Covid dependent & it must be extended to legacy benefits too. Will he now lobby the Chancellor? https://t.co/4ZldEIVijx
📢Macmillan has joined forces with other charities + organisations to urge @GOVUK to keep the £20 increase in Universal Credit payments that have been a lifeline for vulnerable people during the pandemic.

In the long-term, we need a coherent strategy to tackle the underlying causes of child poverty, including low pay, educational disadvantage, and the shortage of affordable housing and childcare, as well as measures to promote social mobility and racial justice.
We agree with @JustinWelby. It's essential that the underlying causes of child poverty are addressed. A stronger social security system, affordable housing and good jobs are key. #SolveUKPoverty #KeepTheLifeline #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY https://t.co/5nylFiD3V0
Along with the leaders of other Christian groups and different faiths, the Archbishop of York and I have written to the Prime Minister to call for the urgent establishment of a cross-party commission to tackle child poverty in England. https://t.co/L1KmWCza8z
We need a long-term plan to #endchildpoverty - making sure we #KeepTheLifeline is a first step. Today, faith leaders joined the call for the temporary £20 #UniversalCredit uplift to be permanent, extended to legacy benefits & uprated in line with inflation https://t.co/3AZKvc9zI9
It’s vital that this uplift is made permanent. For years, the support people can rely on has been eroded. Times are already tough enough as we face the winter and further restrictions. Families need stability and certainty, not further anxiety and stress. https://t.co/yAXxn9tFRc
It's crucial that people on legacy benefits get this lifeline too, the majority of whom are disabled, sick or carers. They have thus far been left behind and the Government should act now to right this wrong. Sign our petition if you agree: https://t.co/BE5mH09GOE
Write to your MP to ensure @RishiSunak uplifts legacy benefits to match the £20 pw increase that Universal Credit claimants have seen. Over 2 million people have lost out on too much already, this Govt cannot let this carry on: https://t.co/mty8gAnccj #IncreaseLegacyBenefits https://t.co/x5lGdPCf6D
We urge the Government to continue taking bold action to strengthen social security and support our society. We need to give families certainty and security through the winter; to make the £20 uplift permanent; and to extend it to people on legacy benefits #KeepTheLifeline https://t.co/1iLLP6Cwc3
