Supporting Centrepoint's Chance to Move On campaign
Progress Housing Group is proud to support Centrepoint's Chance to Move On campaign.
We've signed the petition that calls on the Government to secure a fair rate of Universal Credit for under-25s so that no young person who is living independently risks homelessness or is forced to choose between paying the bills or putting food on the table.
Many young people have no choice but to live independently, particularly if they have experienced abuse, bereavement or homelessness. Under-25s receive less Universal Credit for living costs, which puts those living independently at serious risk of homelessness.
The #chancetomoveon campaign calls on the Government to raise the Universal Credit standard allowance for under-25s to match the amount over-25s receive. This will help young people to cover basic living costs and reduce their risk of homelessness.
