In bed in west Wales, with a laptop propped up on the sheets, Jemima is patching up Britain’s welfare state.Well, since, despite the best efforts of the likes of Frances Ryan to convince us, we don't have people starving in the streets, she must be doing a bang up job!
So who is this wonder woman?
The 39-year-old has never been elected or even been paid a wage – in fact, she’s more likely to give out her own money than receive it – but amid Brexit cabinet infighting, Jemima offers something few ministers can: she knows what it’s like to struggle to pay the bills.Fine, fine. So...what does she do, exactly?
Jemima knows all too well that one of the worst parts of poverty is the shame of asking for help.
The Biscuit Fund turns this on its head: instead of people in need having to turn up to a charity, Jemima and volunteers scour the internet – anything from benefit forums to cries for help on Facebook – and come to them.I bet she never has trouble finding any.
