Focus group for women who have had their benefits sanctioned – Monday 7 April 11.30-1.00, Coventry Citizen’s Advice Bureau

Coventry Women’s Voices are helping Fawcett Society organise a focus group for women who have had their benefits sanctioned in Coventry, which will feed into Fawcett’s Independent Inquiry into the impact of benefit reform on women.

The participants need to be women who are claiming job seeking benefits and have had experience of the Claimant Commitment and/or increased sanctions introduced in October 2013. There will also be some capacity for follow up interviews with individual women who would prefer to speak about their experiences on a one-to-one basis.

We would like to hear from women of differing ethnicities and ages.

All participants will be given a £15 Boots voucher to thank them for taking part and help with women’s travel expenses and child care costs is available.

If you would like to take part, or know or work with women who might take part please contact Daksha Piparia at  or telephone – 02475252019.
