Welfare Reform Bill

In April 2013 the welfare system will change. It will be the biggest change for more than 60 years. It is designed to simplify the benefit system and encourage people to work, while protecting the most vulnerable in our society. It will affect many people across the country and if you are in receipt of benefits, or if you are an employer, then it will affect you too.

The Wiltshire Council website outlines what the changes are: http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/counciltaxhousingandbenefits/welfare2012reform.htm
