Report: ‘Everyday insecurity: Life at the end of the welfare state’

Everyday insecurity: Life at the end of the welfare state was published by the New Economics Foundation in November 2012.

The research shows how welfare changes are ‘driving up demand for local services, as people’s incomes fall and access to support, such as childcare and social care, is reduced. The combined impact of welfare reform and public sector cuts are adding significant pressure to a system that was already buckling under the strain of growing demand and underfunding’.
