The Coalition government has embarked on a wide-ranging and far-reaching programme of change to the UK welfare system. Several components of the agenda have already been implemented. Some are still to come. The Coalition is pursuing policies on welfare benefits, rents and social housing development that have potentially significant implications both for household poverty and the future of housing providers.
In this podcast I discuss a range of issues around welfare reform – and some of ways it links to social housing – with Jules Birch, housing and social policy blogger at Inside Housing and his own blog. (Running time: 49′ 13″)
