The Bishop of Carlisle is visiting the homeless charity, Manna House, in Kendal to hear evidence about how the government's welfare reforms are affecting some of the most vulnerable in society.
He's leading a commission looking into the issue around Cumbria.
Over the next few weeks it will visit a number of charities, community groups and individuals.
A number of the people who go to Manna House for help and advice have told ITV Border that the government's welfare changes are affecting them badly.
