LCPA’s submission to the Work and Pensions Committee Inquiry into the Welfare Safety Net

At the end of 2018, the Work and Pensions Committee conducted an inquiry into the current state of the UK’s welfare safety net, prompted by the evidence of debt, hunger and homelessness it has heard across several recent inquiries.

The inquiry, launched as the UN’s Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty made an investigative visit to the UK, considered how effectively our welfare system works to protect against hardship and chronic deprivation.

We submitted to the inquiry in December 2018.
