Cliff Edge NI Coalition Submission to the Joint Inquiry into Welfare Policy- what are the main points?
The Cliff Edge Coalition NI is a group of over 70 organisations in NI who have joined together to express concern about the upcoming end of the welfare reform mitigations in March 2020.
A joint inquiry has been launched by the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee and the Work and Pensions Committee into the impact of welfare policy in NI including a focus on policies such as Universal Credit and the two-child limit.
Advice NI and NICVA are warning that, with less than a year to go before Welfare Reform Mitigation runs out, thousands of vulnerable people across Northern Ireland may be facing a substantial drop in income and even eviction.
On the 30 November, NICVA hosted a roundtable discussion session to discuss the current issues, impacts and future challenges in relation to the roll out of universal credit.
The review of the Personal Independent Payment (PIP) process undertaken by Walter Rader was launched today (28th June 2018).
NICVA has called for the introduction of Universal Credit in Northern Ireland to be suspended.
With the Welfare Reform Bill now fallen in Stormont and the Assembly entering “unchartered waters” everyone is still unsure of what will happen next with the Bill and the Assembly.
On Tuesday 27th of May the Assembly debated the Final Stage of the Welfare Reform Bill.
DWP says sanctions are a "last resort" and encouragement to work - but some reported examples make that description look laughable, and could make them the biggest danger to Welfare Reform. Scope takes a look.
The general election result means Welfare Reform will come to Northern Ireland, one way or another. Scope looks at two reports examining its impact in Scotland - both on the public and the third sector.
