Qualitative study on the impact of welfare reforms on Riverside tenants

Riverside is undertaking a study aiming to gain a more detailed understanding of the impact of welfare reforms and wider economic change on Riverside households. Anna Clarke, from CCHPR, was an advisor on the project.

The research will build up a picture of the impact on:

  • Household income
  • Outgoings (including food and energy costs)
  • Welfare benefits received
  • Patterns of work within the household
  • Caring responsibilities for children, household or other family members who are sick
  • Perceived need for services (including type of housing)
  • Attitudes to work, money, prospects, future housing choices

CCHPR is providing consultancy input into the study, advising on study methodology, staff training and interpretation of results.
