Show Notes

Did you know that with our current benefits system, young people in supported accommodation are often  worse off when they work more hours? This month we discuss this issue and some of the solutions with a professional and varied panel.
 Presenting the podcast this week are Daniel Williams from Centrepoint Partner charity SLEAP based in Lancashire, Catherine Geddes, a former Centrepoint resident and peer researcher. 
On the Panel are: Daniel Demoulin, Head of Rough Sleeping Services at Depaul UK, Billy Harding, Policy and Research Manager at Centrepoint, Tom Freegard, Housing Officer at Centrepoint, Stephen Timms, MP for Eastham and Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee and Shannon PInk, a former Centrepoint resident.
