Stigma and benefits

A new report by Ben Baumberg, Kate Bell and Declan Gaffney highlights the problem of stigma in benefits. I’m not going to say much about this report, because I’ve had some involvement with its production; I discussed the issues with Elizabeth Finn Care before the research was commissioned and I was on the advisory group. The book I wrote on stigma nearly thirty years ago is free downloadable here.

The report has also prompted a useful short piece on representations of welfare in the press on the Guardian website.
