Following a very successful live online event with ExcludedUK and the three metro Mayors - Sadiq Khan, Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram, here is a copy of the letter being sent to the Chancellor.
Sadiq Kahn described the current situation as, "A national disgrace." and went on to to say that he believed the government had "let people down, leaving them to drown in stress, debt and despair."
All three majors have pledge their support to helping ExcludedUK in anyway they can.ExcludedUK is 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.
