You’re invited to come to come and get some
helpful information about Universal Credit, and
even to help getting it stopped and scrapped!

Wednesday 12th June 7pm – 8.30pm
The Crown Hotel, 1 Chellaston Rd, Derby DE24 9AD

Universal Credit is leaving all sorts of people – people in low paid jobs,
unemployed people, disabled people, single parents and their families –
struggling to make ends meet…

And many people, through no fault of their own, just can’t do it. Money
lenders and loan sharks are making big money out of people’s money
problems Foodbank use has rocketed..

When you start on Universal Credit, you have to wait for weeks with no
money, and then the monthly payment is just not enough to live on.
Then they set you a whole range of things to do – meetings, letter
writing, classes, job search – for 35 hours of your week, and costing you travel money

And if you don’t do exactly what you are instructed, they “sanction” you and stop your benefit as a punishment… just for being late even.

This session at The Crown is organised by Derby Trade Unions Council
and the Derby United Campaign Against Universal Credit. We’ll start off with people from UNITE Community – but the meeting is for you to ask and say what you want.

It’s all free – apart from the bar (sorry!) Hope to see you there! You’ll be made very welcome.
