There are 4 million children currently living in poverty in the UK.
Across the country, it’s getting even tougher for low-income families to make ends meet. Cuts to welfare support and rising prices leave them struggling to provide healthy meals and a warm home for their children.
Without savings or access to affordable credit, these families are forced to pay more for day-to-day essentials. Many have no choice but to turn to high cost rent-to-own companies if their fridge or washing machine breaks, but this could mean they end up paying up to three times more.
Low-income families shouldn’t be forced to pay more for household essentials.
Ask your MP to write to the Government asking for action to protect low-income consumers.
