It All adds up: Briefing on impact of welfare cuts from Church Urban Fund

CUF's  second welfare reform paper is now ready. Following on from last month's Guide to Welfare Reform, this next paper looks at the cumulative impact of the reforms on household finances. As you all know, there are lots of reports out there that look at how many households will be affected by individual reforms e.g. the bedroom tax or the benefit cap, but very few think about how households might be affected by multiple reforms.


This paper looks at the cumulative effect of reforms through the eyes of two hypothetical families and narrates the changes they experience between 2010 and 2017. The aim is to highlight, in an easily accessible manner, the changes that many low income families may well face over the next few years.


The paper is called 'It All Adds Up' and can be found here: http://www.cuf.org.uk/welfare-reform-add-up  (also attached here)
