Benefit changes - Welfare Reform

Sub heading

Benefit changes - Welfare reform
The Welfare Reform Act was introduced by the government in 2012. It affects the way welfare support is calculated, decided and paid. The changes are significant and affect many local people.

Will you be out of pocket?

Everyone receiving welfare benefit needs to understand how these changes affect them personally. In many cases, the amount of cash in pockets will be reduced and the impact may result in financial difficulties for many households.

You can find an overview of each affected benefit here, along with links to more information.

If you have been affected by Welfare Reform, there are a number of local and national organisations that can support you. See 'Help and advice if you are affected by benefit changes' for details.
