A report by David Prosser in Forbes, asks why the Chancellor still refuses to help the 'forgotten' three million.
Rishi Sunak has unveiled no new new support for three million Excluded who have missed out on financial support amid the Covid-19 crisis.
The Chancellor’s argument originally was that the rapid onset of the pandemic had forced the Government to move very quickly to put help in place. Their aim, said Sunak, was to help as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.
But six months later, the Chancellor still continues to refuse to address the plight of those who missed out.
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.
