With Rishi Sunak set to announce the 2021 budget tomorrow, people that have been excluded from financial support during the Covid-19 pandemic will be waiting to hear whether they can finally expect anything to come their way.
“The impacts being felt by those excluded from meaningful support are devastating and far-reaching and are only becoming more acute month by month with ever-increasing financial hardship and spiralling debt. People are relying on savings and pensions, decimating their future financial security. Ample time has passed for the issues to be rectified and we hope to see vital changes reflected in [the] Budget. We urge the Chancellor to recognise the impacts on those affected, as we hit one year since the onset of this crisis, with little to no support for some 3 million UK taxpayers, many of whom have been plunged into debt and poverty. We need parity for those who have been shut out of support through no fault of their own.” – ExcludedUK
