That's what I thought but wasn't sure, some people are too quick to judge.
you need a ticket from the dss /jobcentre before you can get anything from the foodbank ie the people who have stopped/ sanctioned your payment ..then send you to a charity this is where this country is at I always give to food banks ..could happen to the best of us
sad they are even needed but amazing idea
Okay, I misunderstood, the children should not be judged whatsoever, of course. And I have been in the shoes of poverty myself. Does not justify neglectful parenting. My mother struggled, got into debt, but always put us first.
I meant the children should not be judged, not the parents. Everyone has their own problems and sometimes when one hasn't walked a mile in their shoes it's hard to understand and easy to judge. Remember that poverty often begets poverty and nth-generation impoverished people have had no other examples of any other way of life. We're all the product of our upbringing and sometimes we outgrow our modest beginnings and sometimes we don't. It's a hard life and sometimes a bit of compassion is more helpful than ascorbic judgement. I came from very modest beginnings and through hard work, education and good fortune have thankfully managed to achieve a decent standard of living, but many of my contemporaries have not.
