I'm a journalist, I write for the Mirror and a few other places. I've covered stories from this group before now - always with permission, for example: https://www.mirror.co.uk/…/how-could-survive-month-fresh-11… and https://www.mirror.co.uk/…/these-upper-class-toffs-dont-115…
I want to share your stories so that people who are not on UC can understand how difficult it is.
There was a story in the group earlier today about a woman who has so little money she thinks it would be better for her children to be in care. It's horrifying. I want to cover the story of children suffering under this system so I want people who feel able to talk to me about it - anonymously if you prefer.
If you're worried about providing for your children under this system, if you're struggling to give them the basics, if you're feeling desperate and you want to talk about it then please contact me by Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org
