Caz Hattam co-founded The Unity Project (TUP) in 2017 and has coordinated the project since. The Unity Project wants an end to the policy of ‘no recourse to public funds’ (NRPF) and the discrimination and inequality behind it. While the policy continues – and as part of the work to end it – TUP supports people to remove the NRPF condition from their leave to remain through making ‘Change of Conditions’ applications. TUP wants to be part of a broader movement for change.

Karim Ali and Hester Watson, Funnel is a hyperlocal organisation based in Southwark and we are committed to fighting food insecurity. Our core aims are to educate, advocate and act. Our collection points collect food donations and pass them on to a larger local foodbank. The other branch of Funnel, called Funnel Schools, is currently in the works.

Pat Thane is Visiting Professor in History at Birkbeck, University of London. Her research examines inequalities and social policy in Britain from the twentieth century, with a special interest in poverty, gender, and age.

Kate Bradley is Reader in Social History/Policy at the University of Kent. Her research explores British social history from 1918 with a focus on the relationship between individuals and the state. Other research interests include philanthropy and social justice. She has also worked in the voluntary and public sectors.
