Resisting UK Government attacks on the welfare state

Austerity is a lie. The term implies that there has been an economic crisis and that we must all tighten our belts. The reality is that the powerful have used a financial crisis, caused by unjust and failing economic policies, as an excuse to punish disabled people and people in poverty.

The Centre for Welfare Reform continues to document the injustices created by current policies and will continue to support campaigners and activists to share the true facts about austerity and social justice in the UK.

We want to live in a society that works for everyone - for the common good. That means paying particular attention to those facing discrimination, disadvantage, poverty and exclusion.
