Panel: The Real Benefits Street / The Truth about Sanctions


How did the government’s ‘benefit sanctions’ policy end up leading to hunger, destitution and desperation? Why are people on benefits being stigmatised?

Joining Angela Neville, author of Can This Be England?, will be Niall Cooper of Church Action on Poverty and Paul Morrison, author of the report Time to Rethink Benefit Sanctions – along with some who have been sanctioned themselves and taken part in the Real Benefits Street programme.
