“It’s Hitting People That Can Least Afford It The Hardest”

A social study into the impact of Universal Credit in the North East has been published in partnership by a number of North East Organisations, including Teesside University and Gateshead Council, who are formal partners of NESWA.

The report goes into detail regarding the process of Universal Credit, which was introduced by government in April 2013 and focuses upon two localities within the region. The study was built on interviews carried out with 33 claimants of Universal Credit with various experiences and circumstances.
