To whom it may concern


Ref – furlough scheme.


I am a 46 year male.

I have been working since I was 17 and never been out of work.

All my life I have paid tax and national insurance.


I started a new job on the 17th February and was paid on the 31st March and therefore have missed the deadline date for the furlough scheme.

I do not have a employer to go back to.

I cannot claim for any benefits

I have no savings , no money,  I’ll piling in and a family to support.


I find this totally unfair as a British citizen.


Please help me.
