Guide to Welfare Reforms 2010 – 2017

Since coming to power in 2010, the coalition government has undertaken a radical reform of our welfare system. 

Available to download here is a short guide to the most significant changes made over recent years, many of which will come into effect in April 2013.

This paper is the first of three to be published by Church Urban Fund and the Church of England on welfare reform. The second paper will examine the combined impact of recent reforms on household budgets. The third paper will then look at the broader impact of welfare reform, exploring how policy changes are affecting people’s everyday lives and decisions.
