This report looks at the local consequences of welfare reform in the North East, following on from earlier studies by the Institute of Local Governence (ILG).
It is the latest in a series of projects procured and/or carried out by the ILG since 2011. The first was a study of the Impact of welfare reform in Stockton (2012) which was followed by a major regional review, commissioned by ANEC and published in 2013. This was carried out by a partnership of Teesside and Northumbria Universities with the ILG. ANEC has subsequently commissioned further monitoring reports from the ILG and this is the second report to regional Chief Executives.
