What is austerity? What does it look and feel like? What impact does austerity have on people’s everyday lives? Who does it affect, and in what ways? And how do people get by in austerity?
At the height of public spending cuts by the UK government, research on Everyday Austerity was carried out by Dr Sarah Marie Hall in Greater Manchester from 2013-2015.
Austerity is, as the project findings show, more than a political or economic state; it is a very personal condition that is real and felt and experienced.
