Reform recognises the urgent need to reform the welfare system in order to better support people with a disability or health condition. As the Green Paper states, this must ensure appropriate support both for those who can work (according to their capacity, which may be limited) and those who cannot.
For people with a disability or health condition, Reform believe that the current benefit system is fundamentally broken, inadvertently placing additional barriers in front of claimants who, with varying levels of support, could work. Delivering radically different employment outcomes requires a radically different model.
