Benefit Sanctions: Help Shape a Fairer System


The Public Law Project is researching the barriers that claimants face when challenging benefit sanctions.  As part of this they are keen to speak to:


·        Benefit claimants who have been sanctioned by DWP (either recently or in the past)

·        Advisors and other individuals who have experience of providing advice or other support to sanctioned claimants.


Taking part would involve a one-off phone or video call with PLP’s Research Fellow, Caroline Selman, to hear about your experience of the sanctioning process. 



Your insights will be used to help shape a strategy for improving access to justice for claimants who have been unfairly or unlawfully sanctioned. All responses will be anonymised in publication. 

Further information is available on their website here:  https://publiclawproject.org.uk/latest/benefitsanctions/


They are keen to ensure that the research is accessible to all – if you would like to participate in a different format or have any accessibility or language requirements please let them know using the contact details below. 


If you are interested in taking part, or if you would like to find our more, please contact Caroline by either:
