Increase ESA/PIP in line with Universal Credit Coronavirus increase

Petition Details

The Government has decided to increase Universal Credit payments by £20 a week to help with the increased costs people are facing due to the Coronovirus. Many people are on ESA/PIP and deserve the same financial support during this time. These especially vulnerable citizens are being forgotten.

Additional Information

More and more people are remaining at home to help 'flatten the curve' of the COVID19 outbreak. This means there is an increase in the use of basic utilities (Gas/Electric/Water) in many households. A lot of people on ESA/PIP already struggle to pay these bills. Food prices have increased and those with limited mobility are having to buy from more expensive local shops if they can't get to a supermarket or get a delivery slot. They deserve the same financial help as those on UC.
