Join us from 1.00pm - 2.30pm on Thursday 26 November to discuss how the benefit cap is affecting people's lives, and to hear about new research into links between the cap and mental (ill) health.
This webinar coincides with the release of official statistics on the number of households affected by the benefit cap between May and August 2020, so we will discuss these. We already know that the number of households hit by the cap almost doubled between February and May to 154,000, showing the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This webinar is organised by Child Poverty Action Group, the universities of Oxford, York and the London School of Economics and Political Science, and is part of the 'welfare reform and larger families' research project kindly funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
