Useful Booklet on Benefits Changes with Local contact information for Lancashire

Blackburn diocese has produced a booklet with information about each of the changes and some guidance of sources of further help for individuals who find themselves in need because of the changes. It can be downloaded from
It complements the guide published nationally By Church Urban Fund at
We are keen to monitor the impact of these changes by collecting case studies of people affected.

As the pilot stage of  a national research project for Church Urban Fund we are asking clergy and organisations supporting claimants in Lancashire (+ Blackpool & Blackburn) to share their experiences of problems, solutions and failures in the system by writing up cases they have dealt with over the period from March - June this year.

There is a simple online form you can complete for each case you would like to tell us about...  You can find it at

Naturally every story should be kept anonymous... and no individual client should be identifiable from your accounts. We simply want to monitor and report on the patterns that are emerging.

Please take a few minutes to look at the survey and to help us collect this important information.
