WHAT IS REAL LIFE REFORM?
NOT TRYING TO ACHIEVE
Not to prove a point
Not about PR
Not a Political statement
What did the Phase 1 interviews reveal…
I already cant afford to feed myself properly….
I should eat better but cannot afford it, local shops have no fresh veg and cant afford to go to Tesco
Being much more careful in the supermarket about what I buy. I buy own brands as cheaper
I wont be able to manage both heating & food in the winter
Staying upstairs in the day as its easier to stay warm & limits the heating
I have to pay the loan shark each week because I use him to survive
I pay off what I get in priority debts 1st to make sure we have a roof over our heads
I get energy drinks from my GP as I cant afford to eat properly
Have increased my medication by 100%
Make my fortnightly prescriptions last a month as I cant afford to get them as often as I should
Suffer from stress and when things go badly wrong I get upset & suicidal
My neighbourhood is a tsunami of fear
People will be desperate and robberies will go up
We have a small village with community spirit – will split up families & friends who will have to move
1 = no concerns
10 = being most concerned
