Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) have published Universal Credit for single disabled people which shows how single disabled people are up to £300 worse off every month when they transfer to Universal Credit due to the different income rules.

CAB worked with their advisers and other disability and health charities to identify areas where Universal Credit improves support for disabled people, has reduced support compared to the legacy system, and may generate unintended consequences as this group of people continue to move on to the new benefit.

The report from the Children's Commissioner for Wales highlights many issues young people face as they become adults and points out the limited choices and funding available. Transition services, where they exist, vary greatly across Wales and frequently fail because they do not place young people at the centre of the planning process. Being able to make the right choices depends on the availability of the right information and too often this simply doesn't exist.

Self-employment in the UK in the last 15 years has increased as a share of employment following a period of stable or falling self-employment. Since 2008, self-employment has accounted for almost a third of total employment growth. However, while self-employment in the UK, at 15%, is close to the European average, self-employment in many other countries has continued to decline.

This CIPD report, Megatrends: More selfies? A picture of self-employment in the UK, explores the potential reasons and the implications for the economy and the self-employed.
