Benefits Briefing – Equalities

September 7th 2012

Changes to the UK’s social security benefits are not being felt equally across the population. Women are being hit by changes to Income Support for lone parents, older men are being affected by changes to Incapacity Benefit and disabled people are affected by changes to various incapacity and disability benefits.  Using the latest figures (to February 2012), this briefing provides essential background information to everyone interested in  welfare reform.  

The briefing was prepared by the Bevan Foundation for Cuts Watch Cymru. 

Cuts Watch Cymru is an independent coalition of organisations monitoring the impact of changes to social security benefits on people in Wales. Find out more at
