Emily Mann

University of Edinburgh

I'm a teacher and researcher at the University of Edinburgh. I live beside the sea with my dog Olive. I’m the first person in my family to go to university and eldest of three. Before moving to Scotland we grew up in Essex and child tax credit was really important for our family.

On this project, I'm responsible for organising the diary entries written by parents and carers. I’ll also be helping run the advisory group and doing general admin things. I really hope that the impact of the two-child limit and the benefit cap reaches the widest audience possible.

Changing Realities is a collaboration between parents and carers, researchers at the University of York, and Child Poverty Action Group.
Changing Realities is funded by abrdn Financial Fairness Trust.
