    I would suggest anyone having difficulties with UC contact their MP.
    1) MP's have implicit consent from the DWP to represent constituents and act on their behalf re UC.
    2) All MP's should be made aware of the difficulties with UC, as they voted this legislation in. Organisations such as CAB, CPAG, Macmillan, Gingerbread, etc have highlighted concerns, but MP's tend to respond more to the concerns raised by their constituents.
