Merry Christmas from Southpaw
It’s been a challenging year, every person, every industry has been affected in some way by the pandemic. But there hasn’t been just one pandemic happening, there’s been two. We already know that COVID adversely affects those living in poverty, and with 1 in 5 in the UK living below the poverty line, it’s not something we could ignore. Lockdown and working restrictions has tipped more families over the brink, and those who may have never needed to rely on government support, charities or food banks, are finding themselves at the very heart of a huge societal disparity.
