Since 2008, austerity in the UK has led to:
• Funding cuts of 49% for local authorities
• £950m fall in spending on legal aid
• Doubling of the use of food banks
• 478 library closures and a cut of 230,000+ opening hours
• 5.8% cut in adult social care
• 600 youth centres closed

During the same period, the richest one thousand people in the UK have had a wealth increase of £83bn – enough – the Equality Trust calculated, to pay the grocery bills of every family using food banks for fifty six years.
