Welfare Reform Report Launched

Positive Ageing in London and Age UK London have today launched a research report to investigate and challenge the idea that those above state pension age are ‘protected’ from welfare reform, while also looking into the effect of changes on the under-emphasised group of ‘younger-old’ Londoners who are below state pension age but over the age of 50.

Ben Donovan, Research Officer at Age UK London, wrote the report and launched it at an event in Southwark. Paul Bivand, Associate Director of Analysis and Statistics, Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion and Paul Treloar, Advice and Rights Team Manager, Child Poverty Action Group both responded to the launch of the report. We will publish a report of the event as soon as possible.
