St Mungo’s response to the Work and Pensions Committee Inquiry on Universal Credit roll-out

In this response to the Work and Pensions Select Committee inquiry into the roll-out of Universal Credit, St Mungo’s provides evidence about the early impact of the new system on our clients.

St Mungo’s makes recommendations for changes to the Universal Credit system, including Alternative Payment Arrangements, advance payments and Universal Support, that would make the new regime work better for people who are homeless or living in homlessness accommodation.
