The Disability Benefits Consortium wants to hear from people who have experience of the controversial Universal Credit.

Universal Credit has been in the news a lot recently as there are concerns about how it is being rolled out and the amount of money people will receive.

The Disability Benefits Consortium want to find out more about the experiences of disabled people and people with long term health conditions who have accessed Universal Credit and has launched a #UCandme survey (this link will take you away from our website) for anyone with experience of Universal Credit to complete.

The Disability Benefits Consortium is a national coalition of over 80 different charities (this link will take you away from our website) and other organisations committed to working towards a fair social security system. Using its combined knowledge, experience and direct contact with people who use the social security system they seek to ensure Government policy reflects and meets the needs of all disabled people.

By adding your voice, you’ll join thousands of other disabled people and people with long-term health conditions in helping the Disability Benefits Consortium to lobby the UK Government and campaign for a fairer social security system. The results of the survey will be anonymous.

You can find out more about the survey on social media under the hashtag #UCandme.
