In this webinar Deven Ghelani and Joel Reland present findings from new Policy in Practice analysis.
The transition to Universal Credit and the introduction of a lower benefit cap will become a reality for thousands of people this Autumn. For the first time, Policy in Practice has modelled how welfare reform is affecting cities, towns and London Boroughs differently to create a national picture.
Using household-level data from different local authorities we’ve modelled the likely impact of continued deployment of welfare reforms on towns and cities that aren’t yet significantly affected. By analysing the impact of Universal Credit on different types of councils we can predict how similar local authorities are likely to be hit.
Some areas in the UK will see a major impact almost overnight as a result of welfare reforms.
Listen back to hear:
- How your local authority peers are impacted by welfare reforms (by council type)
- What impact the lower benefit cap, Universal Credit and housing reforms will have (by council type)
- How households in your local area are likely to be affected
