#3/09 The Definition of Poverty has Shifted

View descriptionShare

About the Guest:

Peter Heslop joins Susan in this episode talking about the changes that we are all becoming aware of, financial pressures experienced by a broad spectrum of individuals,  and the need for support to help with living expenses. He is the Community Manager at Richmond's Influence Church whose staff and willing volunteers are doing sterling work supporting those in need, supplying food parcels, baby bundles, and school uniforms.

As Peter stated " The definition of poverty has shifted!" and the demographic of those turning up recently has changed. With recent price rises even those in full time work are finding it hard to manage, some are facing the choice between eating and heating their homes and we're not even into winter yet. 

Regular food parcel collections are at the Influence church on Thursday evenings, with  the regular time slots between 6 and 8pm. They also hand out advice and can point you towards relevant sources of assistance in these difficult times. As Peter told us, noone who arrives at their door needing help goes away empty handed.
