The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is once again in the line of fire. But this time, its controversial flagship reform is being subjected to intense, independent scrutiny by claimants themselves. And if you’ve had enough of the DWP, it’s time for you to tell it why.
The DWP: your chance to speak out

As The Canary has documented, Universal Credit is the DWP’s flagship policy; rolling six previous benefits into one. It’s been dogged by controversy and failings, leading for calls for it to be scrapped. It started with Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), and since then both Unite the Union and the Trades Union Congress (TUC) have also made ‘stop and scrap’ their official stance.

So far, only the DWP itself and third sector groups have done research into Universal Credit. But now, a trade union is conducting a nationwide survey of claimants. Organised by Unite Community, the membership scheme for people not in work, it will survey 100 claimants in ten areas of the UK. Members will speak to claimants outside Jobcentres until the end of October. But people can also get involved online.
