Brighton and Hove City Council has commissioned the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion (CESI) to review the impacts of welfare reform on Brighton and Hove. Community Works has a place on the steering group for this research.
They are also running an online survey and would like the voluntary and community sector to respond. This survey aims to gather information from organisations that are engaging with residents who have been affected by changes to the benefits system, including changes to Housing Benefit, Employment and Support Allowance, Disability Living Allowance and Tax Credits.
It will provide Brighton and Hove City Council with an overview of what is being done to support residents across the City, and will be used to help inform the design and delivery of future services to support residents.
The survey is at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/brighton-hove-welfare-reform
It would be useful, but not essential, for you to have estimates of the number of people who have used your services in the past year before completing the survey.
If you have any questions or would like any further information on this project or the survey, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with Afzal Rahman: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 020 7840 8348.
