Benefits Sanctions Linked To Foodbanks
There is a strong link between increased benefit sanctions and higher foodbank use, an Oxford study suggests.
Researchers analysed three years of data from The Trussell Trust to conclude that penalising benefit claimants financially saw a rise in people turning to foodbanks for help.
The Wiltshire-based foodbank provider is now calling for the 'yellow card' warning system being piloted in Scotland - giving claimants 14 days to appeal before a financial sanction is imposed - to be extended across the UK.
University of Oxford researchers analysed foodbank data from 259 local authorities between 2012 and 2015 and they found as the rate of sanctioning increased within local authorities, the rate of foodbank use also increased.
A Department for Work and Pensions spokeswoman said: ``The reasons for foodbank use are complex, and it is misleading to link them to any one issue."
