New video: conditionality didn’t help disabled people into work

Benefit sanctions had no tangible positive effect in moving disabled people closer to paid work, says researcher Dr Katy Jones from the University of Salford in our new video. On the contrary, they could worsen existing illnesses and move people further away from employment.

The video is based on our project’s final findings (also available in large print). Colleagues Dr Jenny McNeill, Dr Lisa Scullion, Dr Katy Jones and Dr Alasdair B R Stewart also wrote a refereed journal article on disabled claimants’ perspectives of the UK welfare system.
