This Government appears to ignore the problems experienced by vulnerable and at risk people in all that they do and have done for years, even prior to COVID-19.
Is this a deliberate action or do they just not understand the problems people are experiencing, however, no matter what it is extremely worrying that this Government have this abandonment policy.
Now which is it?

But, in many aspects there has been an ‘air of indifference’ by this Government. For they may say the required words, but the lack of appropriate actions, speaks so loudly.

New guidance for shielding for people at high risk because of underlying health conditions was released by the government last week, but without even a small offer of financial support. The new guidance advises “vulnerable people” in high alert areas to stay at home as much as possible, but offers no support to help them cope with paying the bills or accessing food and medicine. Even in the highest alert areas, if shielders are unable to do their jobs at home, the guidance only…
