Petition Universal Credit: split payments between adults in each household
The UK Government pays Universal Credit to 1 account per household. Charities have expressed concern this could increase the risk of financial abuse. Payments should be paid to individuals to avoid enabling financial coercion and women being trapped in abusive relationships due to lack of money.
