welfare reform

The Government says its aims are to:

  • Make the benefit system simpler and more affordable
  • Help more people to move into and progress in work, while supporting the most vulnerable
  • Reduce levels of fraud and error
  • Make sure that those able to work must show a willingness to work as a condition of receiving benefits.
