Camden Councillor Angela Mason talks to CCRadio about Universal Credit

Angela Mason, Camden Councillor and lead on matters concerning children and families, talked with Camden Community Radio about her concerns re the roll out of the Government’s policy of Universal Credit to Camden.
All new claims for Child Tax Credit, Housing Benefit, Income Support, Income-based JobSeekers Allowance, Income-related Employment & Support Allowance and working tax credit will be replaced by Universal Credit and claims will have to be made online rather than in person.

In 2019, all Housing benefit claims, excluding those of pensioners are to be replaced by Universal credit. Early rollout of the scheme suggests that it will drive people into deeper poverty and great hardship.

Was Trump Inspired by the Kindertransport?

Is it ever okay to separate a child from their parents? Fingers Crossed Theatre Company explore the effect of separation and immigration on a person’s identity, in their devised play ‘Central (Story) Line’. Three Jewish children arrive in London on the Kindertransport, fleeing from the Nazis. They find themselves at Liverpool Street Station – with no one there to pick them up. This show combines pop culture (Elvis, The Doors, Abba, Britney) with political speeches to explore how these children develop through the decades. How does it feel to be an immigrant in a fast-changing world, and what effect does that initial separation have? Touching on universal topics from love, to loss, to fitting in, this show combines humour with poignance and some classic songs – oh, and it’s also entirely set on the tube!
