I’m Dan, head of advice and rights at CPAG and frustrated arctic explorer. I live in Enfield, north London with my wife Mirca and our two sons Joe and Jake. During the lockdown I have missed going on a canoe trip down the Klarälven river in Sweden with my son Joe. I hope that this project provides a clear picture of the impact that COVID-19 related changes to the social security system have had on UK families. This was we can learn about how the system could be improved, post lockdown.
