Olivia's story, a 22-year-old single mum, based in Glasgow

Olivia shares her experience of transferring from the legacy benefits system to Universal Credit and how the Young Parent Penalty has impacted on her.

"I don’t understand how someone over 25 gets more for being in the same situation that I am. I’m a single parent as much as a 25-year-old is a single parent, we both need to buy the same things."
