Poverty committee hears from third sector representatives

Access to basic shelter, mental health and child hunger were some of the issues raised at a Tynwald committee into poverty on Monday (3rd December).

Representatives from the Isle of Man Foodbank, the Salvation Army and the homeless charity Graih, shared their experience of working with the Island's most vulnerable. 

In the 2 hour sitting, the inquiry looked at the cause and scale of those in crisis, with Chair Juan Watterson calling it the first step into acknowledging and 'making eye contact' with the poverty problem. 

Rising demand for food, shelter and fuel deposits were shared concerns from across the third sector.

Derek Norton is from the Salvation Army:
