Sir Iain said: ‘We need to put in place a personal support program to help those most at risk of falling by the wayside as the recession continues through the winter’

Andy Cook, Director General of the CSJ, added: ‘Britain faces the prospect of an unemployed tsunami at the end of October Our proposals are a very important step towards the resolution of this crisis «

Thousands of people have lost their jobs in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, as businesses shrink or shut down altogether after months of disruption caused by lockdowns and social distancing

Thousands of people have lost their jobs during the pandemic, it is hoped that a new universal support system could help put people who may be living with mental health issues, coping with addiction back to work or who are homeless
