With the spring budget fast approaching 4in10 are calling on the Chancellor to uprate benefits in line with the Bank of England’s February 2022 Monetary Policy Report forecast of 7% inflation.

We know this is not a solution to all poverty by any means and that there needs to be major changes to economic systems and social security in the longer term but it is what we can do to support many of our families now.

We have written to all our members and asked them to take action with tips for engaging local MP’s and a sample email for adapting locally.

Please do feel free to use these to contact London MP’s in time for them to understand how the cost of living crisis is impacting on their constituents from your experience.

A copy of the letter, tips for engagement and sample email are available here.
