The Poor Side of Life blog by Charlotte Hughes

Exposing the unfair treatment of jobseekers, the horrors of Universal Credit, unfair sanctions and heinous treatment of claimants at Ashton under Lyne Jobcentre, Charlotte Hughes felt it was important to document this because one day it will be a part of history that no one will ever forget, especially the people that they talk to and help.

Charlotte started to write this blog a number of years ago due to the onset of Universal Credit. Charlotte and the team could already see how bad it was going to be for the poorest and most vulnerable in society.

We’re extremely privileged that Charlotte is happy for us to share her blog site on our page. It’s full of useful information and real life situations. Charlotte and her team are doing amazing things to support people that are suffering.

Please take a look at The Poor Side of Life blog. It’s sometimes hard to read and realise the harsh realities of what people go through but it will also fill you with hope that there are people willing and ready to help them as much as they can.
