They are also asking the PM to make the £20-a-week boost permanent.
The boost was implemented to help low-income families cope with the extra cost of the pandemic, however, this will come to an end after a year and leave families £1,400 a year worse off.
Cathy Warren, Campaign Manager, 38 Degrees told Express.co.uk: “There is no doubt everyone is feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, but our research shows those on Universal credit are the ones who are really struggling, and will continue to feel the knock-on effects of the economic crisis.
“Universal Credit just isn’t providing them with the level of adequate money needed to cover the basic day to day living costs, and it is extremely concerning that families are having to cut down on food and skip meals just to try and make ends meet.
“The House of Lords Economic Affairs committee has already found Universal Credit not fit for purpose in its current form and has led to an unprecedented number of people not being able to pay their rent and having to rely on food banks.
“We are calling on Government to do the right thing and review the current system, to make the current £20-a week boost permanent, reduce tax credit debt and ultimately support some of the some of the most vulnerable in society at a time of crisis”
