Online Event

With NEF Senior Economist Sarah Arnold, openDemocracy Co-editor Caroline Molloy and TUC Head of Rights, International, Social and Economics, Kate Bell.

Nearly one million people successfully applied for Universal Credit in the final two weeks of March – 10 times the usual number. Thousands more were stuck waiting in an online queue.

The Chancellor has announced a package of measures to support people struggling with the economic fallout of coronavirus. But are they enough? Have 10 years of cuts broken our social security system beyond repair? What should we as progressives be fighting for now, and how do we win our demands?
