Our Local Campaigns
People in our community with no digital access and no support were unable to apply for or renew their Blue Badges for disabled parking. We worked with other Hampshire offices to get the HCC website adapted to make access easier and provide a daily telephone helpline for clients. This enabled our most vulnerable clients to continue to access this valuable service.
£20 uplift for Universal Credit
We participated in the National Campaign “Keep the Lifeline” to lobby the government through our MP to extend the £20 uplift for Universal Credit. In these uncertain times, this uplift has been vital for claimants to help with their daily bills. Currently, it has been extended until June 2021 and we are continuing our work to extend it further.
