An introduction

Welfare Reform

From April 2013, the Benefits Systems started going through one of its biggest shake ups for over 60 years and many working age people have been affected by the changes which the Government is introducing.

As your local council, with responsibility for managing and implementing these changes, we have written to those who affected, explaining what is happening and why. However, on the following pages, we have also brought all this information together in as simple a way as possible, to provide all the information you need.

This information not only includes details about the changes but also the support and advice that is available for those who are concerned about their ability to pay.
