Report launch: What needs to change in Universal Credit?

The APPG on Universal Credit launches its report on priority recommendations

Having held 16 meetings since the APPG was set up in November 2017, examining different aspects and impacts of Universal Credit, the Group decided to compile the findings from Parliamentarians and expert speakers into priority recommendations for improving claimants’ experience of Universal Credit, enabling it to better fulfil its original aims for more people.

The APPG invited all Parliamentarians and expert speakers to submit their priority recommendations to improve Universal Credit, based on their experiences. Parliamentarians held a meeting on 26th February to discuss the evidence submitted to the APPG and decide the Group’s priority recommendations.

This report therefore contains very practical recommendations for the changes that are required to UC, to enable it to better support those with insufficient income.
