Endorse Basic Income

Basic Income UK are on a mission to gather together support for the principle of a Basic Income in the UK with the aim of making it a key campaign issue in the next General Election. 

This is Basic Income UK's statement:

We believe that now is the time for the United Kingdom to reform its benefit system and to base it on a Universal Basic Income (also known as a Citizen's Income). Universal Basic Income would provide financial security for all, so that everyone has the resources they need to fulfil their potential. We urge others to express support for the principle of a Basic Income with the aim of making it an issue in the next General Election.

Basic Income is a regular payment made to every individual, not means tested, non-withdrawable and without work conditions.

It would:

  • Guarantee everyone a secure base which ensures that work always pays 
  • Replace the complex benefits system with a scheme fit for the 21st century 
  • Provide us all, including people who need extra income related to sickness, disability and housing, with the freedom to develop and contribute our talents, and the dignity we all deserve.
