The Trussell Trust says the number of people turning to them for help was a "wake-up call to the nation". The charity claims the impact of welfare reforms that came into force this month has already sparked an increase in numbers passing through their doors.
- Of those helped over the last year 126,889 were children and most recipients were working-age families
- 30% of people helped were referred as a result of benefit delays
- 15% because of benefit changes
- Overall, the charity helped nearly 100,000 more people than it had anticipated
