I’m Jim, and I live in York with my wife, Kat, our two young children, and my retired parents. I work on the participatory part of the project, helping with the fieldwork and analysis. We only recently moved down to York from Glasgow, and it’s been wonderful to see family again. We also really value the support. Working from home at the same time as looking after two young children has been tough. I really hope this project encourages policy-makers to think less about social security as a burdensome cost, and more as necessary support and investment.
