The Joseph Rowntree Foundation have released a call for a project to carry out deliberative qualitative research to explore the experiences of Universal Credit (UC) claimants, as full service is rolled out in Glasgow.

They want to hear from claimants, work coaches and local support agencies about what is working well, and what needs to change, to help drive improvements to policy and practice.

Applications close on 31 August 2018.
