I’m the Senior Policy and Research Officer at CPAG. I live in Leytonstone, East London, with my boyfriend Tom - through we have just moved house and I am currently surrounded by boxes. Swimming is the thing I missed the most during lockdown and cannot wait for public pools to re-open. I work in the policy team at CPAG, so my role is to get the findings of this project to the doors of policy makers and those in government. By documenting the experiences of low income families during the pandemic, I hope this project will help ensure that they don’t get left out of any recovery measures the government puts in place.
