More Stories from Real Benefits Street

As well as our featured real experts, many people have wanted to share their story about their life on benefits. Whilst filming we have met some amazing people, who are doing their best on a daily basis, often in very challenging circumstances.

By making a video for Real Benefits Street, these people have been given a voice – allowing them to challenge the stigma they constantly face and to challenge a welfare system that has let them down when they needed it most.
