This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition The law on WPA (widowed parents allowance) needs to be updated.
Currently those with children who are not married are not entitled to financial help with bereavement payments.
The discrimination of children from cohabiting couples rather than married ones is inconsistent with our human rights policy.
Please sign this petition to force the government to bring this benefit to all vulnerable families not only those with married parents.
