I don't like asking for help, I'm totally ashamed & feel like a failure. Truth is, I've no choice. For my story, read my pinned post.

I'm one of the 3 million #ExcludedUK suffering severe hardship due to #GapsInSupport by the Government.

My children & I need your help.
Sadly asking for help has made me a target. This past week alone I've had my children's schools approached, my former employers hounded for info, my kids photos downloaded by another man, my address dox & my appeals abused by trolls that thankfully the Police welfare checked me
Recently, one of the #ExcludedUK sadly took her own life. She was 32. She died without support, alone, & penniless, a victim of the cruel #GapsInSupport policies by the Government, she didn't ask for help as she saw first hand what happened on here to those that do.
My boys & I have been #ExcludedUK now for 8 months. I've sold personal items, exhausted savings, git myself into debt & my old bank is chasing me for my overdraft when I had nothing.

It's not about Christmas, we desperately need help to get through Winter. #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY
Please can you help? Despite the hate, the abuse, & the humiliation of asking, My pride is no longer an obstacle & I'm fighting for my family

I'm a proud man & worked all my life. I've paid my taxes, Nat Ins, & tried my best to be the best dad to my children, showing them work pays & to always be there for them. On March 14th, I left my job at
@harrogatebus ready for a new start with LNER, then Covid 19 happened.
When Covid 19 happened, I suddenly found myself out of work. My dream job, gone. @RishiSunak spoke about furlough, I thought I'd be okay. I wasn't. Not eligible for Furlough due to being a new starter, I was left without any support. I tried #rehirefurlough with my old employer
My old employer
refused to help, despite leaving on good terms and serving an extended notice. I was literally without a single penny to feed my family. I started to really worry. I had nothing. Despite rehire furlough costing my old employer not a single penny.
