Turn2us responds to the Spring Statement



Following today’s Spring Statement, we are warning that more needs to be done to help people struggling to make ends meet.

Alison Taylor, Director of Operations at Turn2us, outlines the charity’s concerns:

“Today’s Spring Statement was overshadowed by the day’s Brexit deliberations, but for the millions of people living in poverty, there are other more pressing concerns.

“The Chancellor did not take the opportunity to end the benefits freeze or change the five week wait for Universal Credit; the two policies which are directly pushing hundreds of thousands of people into poverty, homelessness and debt.

“We will continue to champion the voice of the most vulnerable in our society to improve their day to day lives.
