Tell the Chancellor: Guarantee a basic income to all during the coronavirus crisis

In these unprecedented times, nobody should have to decide between their health and their livelihood. Sign the petition now to demand a guaranteed basic income for all in the UK.

Basic income is an unconditional, guaranteed weekly payment for everyone. A guaranteed income can ensure people’s basic needs are met and provide security in periods of change.

As the Coronavirus crisis unfolds, the case for a guaranteed basic income is clear. We need an Emergency Basic Income now to address the huge insecurity and uncertainty we all face.

But our economy has been changing since before the virus hit. Automation, climate change and a broken welfare system have impacted millions already. For the crisis of today - and for our future - a basic income can create a more resilient, healthy and good society for all.

The Government must act without delay. Call on the Chancellor to guarantee a basic income now.
