#KeepTheLifeline: BASW responds to Universal Credit cut

BASW UK will continue to fight against poverty and austerity

Today the UK Government will cut Universal Credit by £20 a week.

The Prime Minister will hope that his conference speech will take the focus away from the cut, but we can't let that happen.

Social workers will see first-hand the devastating effect this will have on families and communities.

In this short video, BASW chair Gerry Nosowska explains how we will continue to fight against poverty and austerity.
