  • Claiming (or have claimed in the last 8 years) welfare benefits (including child benefit)*, tax credits and/or a state pension
  • Based in England, Scotland or Wales.

If this is you, please get in touch!

This is a group of researchers, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, looking to improve the experiences of LGBT+ people having to deal with the benefits system.

They particularly keen to hear from people of colour/black and minority ethnic folks.

The conversation will probably last around an hour and can be at a time and (online or physical) place of your choice (covid-19 permitting).

* Welfare benefits can be any benefit you have received from the Department for Work and Pensions, Job Centre Plus, your local council, or Social Security Scotland.

If you apply for this opportunity please let the organisers know that you saw it advertised by Shaping Our Lives. Thank you!
