Labour’s manifesto promises a real difference to any living in poverty

What is Labour saying will be done to help all in poverty?

  • Scrapping the Bedroom Tax immediately
  • Scrapping the Sanctions regime
  •  Reinstating Housing Benefit for unemployed 18-21 year olds
  • Scrapping cuts to Bereavement benefits
  • Increasing the Work element of Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) by £30 per week
  • Ending the 6 week delay in paying out to new Universal Credit (UC) claimants
  • Ending the ‘rape clause’ for mothers claiming UC for more than 2 children 
  • Replacing the Work Capability and Personal Independent Payment  (PIP) assessments with a humane and personalised service
  • Ending the constant reassessments for people with severe long term conditions
  • Keeping the pensionable age at 66
  • Building a large volume of council and housing association homes -; at least 100,000 a year, at truly affordable rents.
  • New private tenancies will be for 3 years, with limits on rent rises
  • Keeping tax and National Insurance payments as they are unless you are pretty well off.
  • Increasing the minimum wage to £10 an hour, for everyone aged 18 or over
  • Giving more money to local authorities, protecting libraries, post offices, pubs and local shops

Of course, many/most of these policies will provide benefits to us all – the many.
