Basics food BANK – North Lanarkshire posted this to facebook:

We have received a referral for a single parent with 3 kids. This lady was sanctioned for non-attendance at an appointment.

This is the referral we got from the agency supporting her.

******* is a vulnerable Lone Parent I have referred her previously due to mix up with child tax credits.She has 3 children youngest Son just discharged from hospital pass out at home Has had surgery to remove brain tumour and stent fitted. ******* failed to attend Job Centre when Son was in hospital, I am working with Job Centre to get benefit sanction resolved, in meantime access to foodbank would allieviate some stress for this Family.

You just can’t make it up!!!
