A young mother who is employed but in receipt of Universal Credit to top up her income has found herself through no fault of her own without any money. She relies on the UC payment, but because her employer advised HMRC of an incorrect amount this has meant there was no UC payment. She has been existing on foodbanks for her and her 3 year old daughter. They have managed to secure an advance on the UC, and our agents are trying to get a resolution manager at the DWP to look at this lady's case as a priority one that needs resolving fast. We sent over £150 as her next wage is not due until the middle of April.
