UNISON needs your help.

UNISON's press team is looking for parents who work in the NHS, schools, local government and police forces, who would be happy to talk to journalists about how government restrictions on their pay and cuts to in-work benefits have made life financially tough for their families.

It's to illustrate a TUC story that suggests that one in seven children whose parent (or parents) work in the public sector will be living in poverty by April. To qualify as a case study you don't need to be on the breadline, just happy to talk about how your wages don't stretch as far as they used to, and how it can be a struggle to get through the month.

For this story, you would need to be prepared to be filmed or quoted, you couldn't be anonymous.

Most media outlets are keen to speak to people today, and then either film them today or tomorrow. If this is something you think you'd like to do, please get in touch with Liz or Charlotte in the media team. Either email us or call on 0207 121 5466.

Thanks so much. We look forward to hearing from you!
