2000?!?! Something is very wrong if 2000 people need to use a food bank. There are so many good causes that it's quite depressing and difficult working out which ones 'deserve' your help most.

As we saw yesterday, many people will not get Universal Credit at all in December. As well as those who have to wait almost three months for their first payment, many who have other income won't get their existing payment during December as there are five paydays in the month, which means they won't qualify.

The tory party must be so proud of themselves.

How do they know who genuinely needs it and who's taking the p*ss.

They don't. Do you think there are many who use a food bank unnecessarily?

There will always be some. The vast majority clearly aren't going to go through the humiliating experience for the sake of £30 of groceries and a couple of token gifts.

Because they have to have a referral from DWP, Social Services or similar.

They are only given handouts if they're in receipt of revelant forms from local charities involved in it.

There are no fraudulent claims.

I know people who have gone to the trouble of selling their house, the husband ‘disappearing’ abroad with the money while the wife goes into a refuge until getting a council house. Then the husband returns (skint obviously). So yeah, I wouldn’t put anything past anyone

From what you say, they were involved in a fictious or collusive desertion in order to obtain benefits. That's a crime, prosecutable under either the relevant SS legislation, or the Theft Act.

As you could report this crime email anonymously, nobody would know it was you.

If you don't want to report people for fraud, don't complain about it.

And to stop you asking, I've had people imprisoned for benefit fraud.

They work on a referrals basis. You can't just rock up and grab a bag.

Just googled it. On Citizen's Advice it says they will have an appointment with you to go through your circumstances. People could lie, there's no denying that, but it's quite clear the vast majority of the people genuinely need help.
