Evidence needed for social policy research

Mary O’Hara (social policy journalist and author of Austerity Bites) is looking for evidence to support her new project and is interested in hearing from claimants and advisers about the current difficulties/realities.  She is especially interested in:

  • Bedroom tax/housing and homelessness
  • Welfare changes/freezes/cuts to benefits
  • Food banks and poverty
  • Stress/mental health impact of cuts
  • Impact on women/children/single parents/disabled people
  • Local government cuts: social care/crisis loans etc..
  • Regional impact

She would appreciate our help with this and would love to hear from you about your experiences and also from any clients who would be willing to tell her their story.  She would welcome any documents/case studies/reports that you have.  Please email kelly@nawra.org.uk
