2 May 2017 – 10:55:26 When I moved to the city, I had to learn the language.
I had no idea what the word for ‘social welfare’ was, so I didn’t understand why I was told what to do.
When I asked why, my answer was: ‘Because you’re poor’.
And I still get the message.
I was in a state of shock, thinking: ‘How can this happen to me?’
It was a bit of a shock.
There was nothing I could do.
It was quite hard to accept that I wasn’t the only one, and that this was my fault.
It has been an ongoing issue in this country for decades.
In many parts of Britain, we’ve been forced to look to the state for help, and it’s been a problem we’ve had to live with for quite a long time.
One of the main reasons is the welfare system.
Many people rely on the state to provide basic essentials, such as food, clothing and housing, but that system has been woefully inadequate in terms of the way in which it’s provided.
A lot of the benefits have been targeted towards low-income people, rather than those who need them most.
The problem is, the social safety net is woefully lacking, and in many parts, we’re not getting the money we need to help the most vulnerable.
There’s been much talk about the ‘benefits gap’ in recent years, and many people are now asking why we haven’t found the money to provide this basic safety net to those most in need.
One thing that has been overlooked is that people in receipt of social welfare have also been subject to a raft of unfairness.
People with mental health problems are often the ones who suffer the most when it comes to receiving the most help.
This is particularly true for those who have a history of homelessness, or who are on disability, and whose families are reliant on the system to support them.
There are also many people who have been excluded from benefits because they have mental health conditions or mental health issues that they are currently experiencing.
The way we treat people with mental illness is completely unjust and the reason we have such a ‘benefit gap’ is because we haven: ignored the very real, but hidden, suffering of those in receipt, and the harm they are enduring; and
