Food Banks

I wrote about Food Banks four years ago as part of a CPD unit that I wrote for the TDA which is available on the GA website.

In previous years, these have become even more common, and there are now thousands of people in the UK who rely on help to feed their families.
This New Statesman article is helpful too in outlining some of the issues around this option.

Will there be even more people relying on Food Banks in the future ? The latest news on energy prices is not good news, but not unexpected.

Recently a child poverty map of the UK revealed a range of extremes of children's lives.

And last week, my local paper had a headline about child poverty too, as shown to the right...

A good focus for discussions on 'development indicators' perhaps...
