Lyn and Terry aren’t alone – as the team at the Solent Welfare Rights Project try to help their clients cope with tough times, they know there is worse to come. From the ‘Bedroom Tax’ to the ‘Benefit Cap’, the end of the Social Fund and sanctions, everything is changing and not for the better.
As Hilary Carrington and her colleagues adapt to the changing times, can they hold on to their principles and independence, and what will happen to their most vulnerable clients as ‘Welfare Reform’ gains pace?
