Mum forced to foodbank weeks after giving birth

Leanne Keating has worked since the age of 16. But she was left penniless and with a tiny baby after the company that employed her closed.

Leanne – who also has a seven-year-old autistic son Aiden – says she burst into tears on her first visit. “I was scared because I felt like I was not doing my job as a mum. It was hard asking for help because I have always worked and I’ve always been so careful with money.

After Leanne’s tax credits were stopped she was forced to turn to the foodbank another four times while she proved to the DWP that she really was a single parent.
