Report in The Telegraph entitled, "Back to the shop floor: the unemployed office workers falling off the career ladder." Tells how the Coronavirus pandemic has affected the job prospects of millions as people are forced to take low paid positions to make ends meet.
Millions of people are facing the fact that their careers have been upended by the coronavirus crisis, forcing them to take on temporary roles often for significantly less money.
ExcludedUK, estimates that around three million people across the UK, have found themselves unable to access government financial support due to varying circumstances which prevent them from qualifying. The newly self-employed, small limited company owner-directors and people on PAYE freelance short-term contracts are just some of the UK’s workforce which have fallen through the cracks of the Treasury’s support schemes.
ExcludedUK a non profit grassroots NGO founded to provide a platform for those denied fair and adequate financial support from the Governments COVID-19 Support schemes since the pandemic began in March. With a community of over 60,000 members across all industries, age groups and regions, we estimate that three million UK tax payers have been excluded from the same support as others, which has lead to thousands of people losing their livelihoods, careers, and homes, and sadly, for some, their lives.
ExcludedUK has been fundraising to provide urgent help and support for those affected in the forms of business and career advice, debt support and 121 counselling sessions within 48 hours. Please find more information on our website www.excludeduk.org.
