Welfare reform - Universal Credit

Files in the Law Centre library

The coalition government has published “Universal Credit: welfare that works”. The White Paper outlines plans to introduce legislation to transform the benefit system by creating a new Universal Credit.


Having consulted on the principles and models for welfare reform in its earlier 21st Century Welfare paper, the government plans to introduce a Universal Credit that it anticipates will simplify the benefit system and increase work incentives. For a summary of the government’s plans please follow this link and to read the Law Centre’s response to 21st Century Welfare click here.
