RISE will establish a new public institution which mainstreams welfare advice and delivers benefit administration.
This would firstly assist the public in navigating the complicated and degrading maze of Tory welfare policy. People would be able to find out exactly what they are entitled to claim, the same way that anyone can receive independent financial advice.
There are many who still suffer from the bedroom tax, because receiving mitigation payment is still complex.
Secondly, those suffering from the humiliating sanctions regime would be able to receive a grant to stop the starvation and desperation which goes along with the brutal regime. Assistance with appeals, tribunals and advocacy would also form part of its function.
Longer term, RISE will support the growing campaign for a basic citizens income.
