The impact of austerity politics
In a privatised children's prison a care worker restrained a boy who died; G4S promoted him. A woman deported for profit by a British government outsourcer stood naked on an airport runway and took an overdose.
A minister who blamed food bank clients for their poverty lined his pockets using Parliamentary expenses. A single dad driving his son to school one day missed the JobCentre's call, so they docked him one week's money.
Shine a Light has sprung from our influential and hard-hitting work on child detention and encompasses G4S: Securing whose world?, Care and justice, Immigration detention and removal in the UK and The attack on legal aid.
Led by acclaimed investigative reporters Clare Sambrook and Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi, Shine a Light exposes injustice, challenges official lying, and provides intelligence and ammunition to people working for policy change.
