What we’re about

This is a project about the day-to-day challenges faced by people from a variety of backgrounds united by their common experience of financial hardship and lack of opportunity. Drawing on individual interviews with – and personal testimonies from – adults affected by benefit cuts, a precarious, low-waged job market, rising living costs and overstretched, eroded public services, it aims to shed light on the impact on people across society of years of austerity and depleted, increasingly conditional, social security support.
