URGENT - Big media opportunity tomorrow on Universal Credit

Hi there,

Scope's Content Manager here. We've been approached by journalists at The Independent, ITN and Channel 5 who want to speak to a disabled person who has lost or is about to lose their disability premiums due to the transition to Universal Credit.

I understand that this is a very sensitive subject, however, our brilliant press team will be on hand to support you.

Please contact myself ([email protected]) and Amy Byrne ([email protected]) with a brief overview of your experiences and a recent photo of yourself that you'd be happy to be shared. There may also be some filming opportunities tomorrow.

Many of the journalists are working to a 5pm deadline - so do get in touch before then if you are interested.

Many thanks!
