Abstract

Drawing on her research into the lives of long-term benefits recipients in North East England, Kayleigh Garthwaite argues that we must pay more attention to the emotional harm caused to claimants by the climate of suspicion in which they now live. The problem lies with the assessment procedure rather than with the recipients themselves.
