Social Fund

The Child Poverty Action Group has published The Social Fund at a local level: notes for and from practitioners, which analyses the cuts made to support available through the Social Fund, which supports people on a low income. Based on a sample of 12 authorities, the average reduction in funding for replacement local schemes (required under the Welfare Reform Act 2012) will be 13.9 per cent between 2011-12 and 2013-14, rising to 15.6 per cent in 2014-15.
