Welfare reform support programme

We have created a Ministerial task and finish group to assess and monitor the implications of Welfare Reforms. It will also consider the impacts across all our policies.

UK working group

The Department for Work and Pensions have set up a Support and Exceptions Working Group. They will look at the design and delivery of support needed to help claimants to adapt to Universal Credit.

This has been a UK wide group, but we have now agreed that there should be a separate group for Wales. The Third Sector, housing professionals and other stakeholders will be involved in the group. We will concentrate on supporting the Welsh public through the implementation of Universal Credit.
