Welfare reform

Major changes to the benefits system have come into force in the last few years, including the roll out of Universal Credit. 

Housing associations have been working hard to support affected tenants through the changes and to adjust their own business planning. Alongside this, they make a significant contribution to reducing the welfare bill by providing employment and skills services, which help people off benefits and into sustainable work.
