Welfare reform report

Local authorities play a key role in supporting services and people to manage the impacts of reform, and in ensuring that changes do no disproportionately affect vulnerable people. This LGA report provides an overview of the impacts of welfare reform in England.  It looks both at key indicators that help to determine the impacts of welfare reforms in England, and those that then quantify these impacts.  It has been designed for viewing at single tier, district and county local authority geographies. If you have any feedback please email them to lginform@local.gov.uk
