Sign the Cost of Living Petition

The cost of living is rising fast and even more people are now finding it impossible to pay their bills and buy enough food for their families – even before the additional rise in fuel prices due in October.

Our benefits system should reflect the true cost of living and provide a safety net for the most vulnerable. Instead it's leaving food banks to pick up the pieces. Sufra has seen an unprecedented demand in new food bank users – and so have fellow members of the Independent Food Aid Network.

Enough is Enough!

This petition calls on the UK Government to urgently increase benefit payments by at least 7% to keep pace with inflation, alongside longer term improvements to the benefits system.

The petition is being shared by the Trussell Trust, the Independent Food Aid Network and Feeding Britain. We urge all our food aid volunteers and staff members to sign it.
