Sanctions, Support and Behaviour Change: Understanding the Role and Impact of Welfare Conditionality

Project Director: Professor Peter Dwyer (University of York) and Professor Del Roy Fletcher (Sheffield Hallam University)
Project Duration: 2013-2017

The use of conditional welfare arrangements that combine elements of sanction and support in order to influence the behaviour of welfare recipients has become an established component of welfare, housing, criminal justice and immigration policies. CRESR at Sheffield Hallam University, in collaboration with Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, Sheffield and York universities, has been awarded an ESRC large grant to conduct a major study on the efficacy and ethicality of conditional welfare policies. This five year project creates a collaborative, international and interdisciplinary focal point for social science research on welfare conditionality by establishing an original and comprehensive evidence base across a range of social policy fields and diverse groups of welfare service users.


The Contemporary Labour Market in Older Industrial Britain

Project Director: Professor Christina Beatty and Professor Steve Fothergill
Project Duration: 2016-2017

There is renewed political, policy and media concern about the ‘places left behind’. This has been prompted by the EU referendum in particular – less prosperous areas in England and Wales voted heavily for Brexit – but it also has deeper roots in the widespread perception that present-day prosperity is by-passing many places and communities.


ESRC Seminar Series: The health impact of cold homes and fuel poverty

Principal Applicant: Professor Angela Tod / Co-applicants: Jan Gilbertson, Professor Christine Liddell, Catherine Homer

Project Duration: 2015-2018

This seminar series will generate new understanding of human behaviour regarding cold homes, fuel poverty and their impact on health by reviewing current evidence, identifying evidence gaps and priorities for future research. The series will explicitly consider the influence of social and health inequalities, and focus on policy influences, impact and interventions. It will add to existing academic knowledge by reviewing and synthesising existing evidence, and will identify gaps in knowledge.


Housing in later life: Meeting the future needs of Greater Cambridge

Project Director: Dr Stephen Green
Project Duration: April 2017 - September 2017

About the Project

South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge City has a growing number of older residents. Responding to this, the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR) has been commissioned to research the housing, care and support needs of people in later life. The research will identify the housing and other services currently provided locally, and estimate what will be needed in the future. We will speak to providers of housing, care and support services, and other stakeholders, to gather their views. Residents will also be consulted about their preferences, options and plans for later life. This will help to develop local policies about where new housing and care facilities are located, and the type of accommodation and services they will include.
