Benefit Rise will not Protect Anyone Against Poverty

Benefits, including PIP payments and pensions have risen by around 3% in April but many people have warned that this is not going to give people any protection from hardship. Benefits are not coinciding with the rising cost of inflation and if you look at growing energy bills you will soon see that this is contributing to the crisis of living. At the end of the day, it is vital that the cost of living ends up matching the benefits and right now it doesn’t look like this is the case. The government have to do what they can to make sure that the benefits are being given out fairly and they also need to do what they can to make a positive change.

The cost of living is said to rise even more this year and it is going to be difficult to comprehend the kind of logic behind this choice. There has to be more done to try and protect the value of benefits and right now it would seem that the government have done nothing to help those who need it.

Those who work in homecare and in private nursing are feeling the brunt of this even more. Bespoke care packages mean that people have to travel for their jobs ad it also means that social workers are getting the biggest hit when it comes to rising fuel costs. This is having a huge impact on mental health and it would seem that this is not going to change any time soon.
Only time will tell what the future holds but right now it would seem that more needs to be done to try and help those who truly need it. If not then this could mean bad things for the future and it could even mean that the pressure on the benefits system is increased as people leave their jobs.
