During #IPWeek2022 we are reminded of the cases of avoidable injuries that happen every day.
Alarming findings in this new, well researched report.
For example: 18% of people had to borrow money due to Covid-19, more than doubling to 38% for people from ethnic minority groups and rising to 35% for those aged 18-34. https://twitter.com/Peoplelend/status/1541380559812935680
In 2021 we decided to commission some research into the state of financial exclusion in the UK. Today, we've published the full report! See below for findings 🔍

Happy to allocate a @WiganCouncil Brighter Borough grant to St Peters school Hindley. The grant has provided flowers for the newly formed St Peters children’s communal garden.

The timescale is far too long. Many of us have been warning of harm to vulnerable customers for more than 2 years! Dragging on for at least another year is irresponsible, particularly during a cost of living crisis.
Welcome news that affordability rules and access to the Financial Services Ombudsman will apply to BNPL.
But not for some time yet! UK outlines plans to tighten ‘buy now pay later’ rules https://www.ft.com/content/d6ea8502-f17b-435a-9081-7ed8cc4a83a5
Delighted to join @WiganCouncil @WWLNHS @wiganleighcol @edgehill at the opening of the Advanced Technical Studies centre tonight

Great to meet with @GMPWigan today to discuss local policing - including the new A49 link road & ASB - thanks to Emily Higham for the update and the police officers and PCSOs who work so hard on our behalf.
Today is #NursesDay and I am proud to support @theRCN in showcasing the #BestofNursing.
Nurses across #Wigan and the country have played an incredible part in looking after us all when we've needed it most - especially over the last two years.
Thank you for everything you do.
🛍 In the UK, online marketplaces are not bound by the same safety laws as High Street retailers.
💥This creates a loophole in which dangerous goods can be bought and sold on these sites.

UKRAINIAN DISPLAY VANDALISED/MORRIS STREET
Sad to have to report this morning the solidarity display we put up in Hindley as a show of support to the Ukrainian people has been vandalised overnight. @paulbart42 @Y_FovargueMP @MakerfieldCLP @CllrKlieve @mickhannan476
Under the Conservatives, people are working hard and getting less.
Britain deserves better. Labour would cut energy bills by up to £600, scrap the National Insurance rise and make homes warmer.
Vote Labour on Thursday 5 May.
Pleased to support calls for #ReggiesLaw to regulate online animal sales
The Conservative in Leigh are sharing posts to say our council tax would be cheaper under their leadership.
This is a lie.
Wigan Council tax is the lowest in the North West - and Labour Councils are an average of £300 cheap that Conservative Councils.
Here is our Band D 👇🏻
24,000 people wrote to their MP, demanding the government follow through with its promised legislation to #ProtectCash.
We urge @JohnGlenUK to protect communities who rely on cash and face-to-face banking services, by ensuring this legislation is included in the Queen's Speech.

A sobering moment today at @CitizensAdvice. We've had to add a top tier category in our data for people needing foodbanks. Not something we do lightly but the growth in destitution is now systemic enough to need it. Foodbanks now rank fourth in the advice we give.
Experts predict energy bills will stay well above £2000 into winter 2023/24 - by then we'll also be paying back the govt's energy rebate.
More & more evidence that a 'buy now pay later' support scheme won't work - needs to be a grant.
Our advice service will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday!
I’ve given an overview of the latest @StepChange Statistics Yearbook, which shows that even before the #CostofLivingCrisis many households were struggling to afford the essentials. https://twitter.com/StepChange/status/1512385506104991744
📙📈 Yesterday, we launched our annual Statistics Yearbook. As @Politicana explains, it reveals that many of our clients were struggling, even before the cost of living crisis hit.

Ahead of the local Council elections on 5th May, our friends @dropthedebt have provided an easy way for people to e-mail their councillors and ask them to commit to banning the use of bailiffs for Council Tax collection - https://act.jubileedebt.org.uk/councils-ban-bailiffs
From today people on prepayment meters who run out of money and disconnect themselves from electricity or gas will find their electric meter will still be ticking up at £3.53 a week standing charge and the gas meter at £2.62 – £6.15 a week to be without heat, light, or cooking.
Thanks to all who attended our reception at the House of Lords this week, in particular the PM's Trade Envoy to Libya @Y_FovargueMP, the Libyan Ambassador to the UK HE Salah Mrehil, and @DavidJonesMP Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Libya.
And get well soon Robin!
Delighted to meet the PM’s trade envoy to #Libya @Y_FovargueMP at yesterday’s reception for members of the Libya British Business Council. We look forward to working with her to promote UK/Libya trade relations @LBBCnews
💡If you've got a non-smart prepayment meter, top up your meter as much as you can before March 31st to stockpile your energy credit.
