What difference to your life has the extra £20 per week made, and what difference would it make if it was taken away?: "£20 less a week will have a huge impact on us as a family. We already rely on free school meals and food parcels from the Winter COVID Grant in addition to UC, to get us through. We need a new car seat for my eldest, and new clothes for her (and with charity shops shut that’s going to be more expensive than normal). Our outgoings have increased with lockdown, and to lose it in April, when the effects of the pandemic are far from over, will be tough."
