…it’s not a hand out, but it is an arm around the shoulder. So, to some people, we talk about poverty, but we also talk about emotional distress, emotional…the emotive issues that affect people… and there is a crossover, because mental health has an impact on poverty, and mental health has an impact on our sense of wellbeing, our ability to thrive in life and to have the skills to thrive in life. So, we are trying to cover far more than just address the raw need for food or for a particular support to help with debt. It’s a broader support.
