Self isolation is a necessary inconvenience for most of us but spare a thought for our clients who may be in emergency accommodation without cooking facilities or in homes without carpet or curtains and no outside space.

Low-paid workers are at the epicentre of the economic crisis. They work in sectors most affected by social distancing measures, working from home is a less viable option, and they have fewer savings to fall back on if they lose jobs. They must be front and centre of govt support.

I've made many versions of this chart, but I'm still shocked at just how much money poorer households have lost as a result of the 2015 package of welfare cuts, with *average* losses of almost £3,000 a year

For many people, covid-19 isn’t just scary from a health perspective, but from a financial one too. 11.5m people in the UK have less than £100 in savings. One week’s lost income could be a financial catastrophe.
