Welfare Conditionality: Disabled people

Year of Publication: 

A joint team from 6 universities has published the final findings of the Welfare Conditionality project (2013-2018). It presents analysis on the effectiveness, impacts and ethics of welfare conditionality, and the sanctions and mandatory support that underpin this approach.

Discussion draws on analyses of qualitative data generated in interviews with 52 policy stakeholders, 27 focus groups conducted with practitioners, and repeat qualitative longitudinal interviews undertaken with welfare service users in England and Scotland (481 at wave a). Interviewees were drawn from nine policy areas: jobseekers, Universal Credit (UC) recipients, disabled people, migrants, lone parents, offenders, social tenants, homeless people, and those subject to anti-socialbehaviour (ASB) interventions and Family Intervention Projects (FIPs).

Separate briefings are available on a variety of policy areas, including disability. The full set of reports can be found at http://www.welfareconditionality.ac.uk/publications/final-findings-welcond-project/#more-1890
