Get involved

Help us uncover the true impact of austerity. You can get involved with the Austerity Uncovered project in many different ways.

Join us on tour

Attend a local event and share your experience with us and other local people. Many of the activities we’ll be going to will be open if you’d like to come along, and for when we’re out talking to people in city centres, we’d also love some help! Check out the map now, where we’re adding information as it gets finalised.

Tell us your story online

And if you can’t make it to the tour in person, we’d love to hear from you online. You can tell us your experiences of austerity, and how it’s affecting the people and places where you live. You can send us a story and photo, which we’ll be collating into a final report to present to government and raise awareness, as well as showing them on this site.

Spread the word

Help publicise the tour and the stories that we’re hearing as it happens. Please follow us and share this site on social media and by email. The more people who hear the stories we’ll be retelling here, the stronger the argument that we need to make the break with austerity.
