ARCH/NFA Welfare Reform Survey – call for evidence 07/06/2018

We are currently preparing our annual survey into the impact of welfare reform on ARCH & NFA landlords and tenants.


We are keen to ensure a good response and are asking as many ARCH member councils as possible to participate in this year's survey.


Survey forms were sent out last month and the survey deadline is Friday 8 June 2018.


We would like to thank those ARCH member councils that have already submitted their return and in particular Ipswich BC, South Derbyshire DC, Warwick DC, Epping Forest DC, Ashfield DC, Brighton and Hove DC, & Southampton City Council for submitting their returns early.


We will be chasing up responses from other members in the next few days.


The plan is to compile a draft report by no later than 22 June and to publish the final report by 11 July 2018.


This year's survey report will form part of a series of reports which have assisted ARCH & the NFA in arguing the case with Ministers for appropriate reforms and on-going dialogue with DWP officials in the way in which Universal Credit is being rolled out and following publication of last year's report "Pause for thought", the Government subsequently announced a number of significant concessions, called for in our report, in the role out of Universal Credit including some of those suggested in our report.


Please help us to make sure that the Government fully understand the impact of welfare reform on social landlords and tenants by ensuring that if your council has been asked to complete the welfare reform survey you do so as quickly as possible.


If you wish to discuss the survey please contact ARCH Policy Adviser Matthew Warburton
