Senior Research Director Charlotte Pickles appeared on LBC Radio to discuss the findings of Reform‘s latest report, Working welfare: a radically new approach to sickness and disability benefits
which argues that the current disability welfare system needs a radical overhaul.
Reform argues for a single out-of-work benefit. Savings from this rate reduction should then be reinvested into Personal Independence Payment – which contributes to the additional costs incurred by someone with a long-term condition – and into support services. It allows gives more opportunity for a personalised system, focused on what a claimant can do.
