DECENTRALISATION AND LOCALISM BILL PDF

For many deprived areas spending on benefits payments and welfare to work programmes is the largest public investment they receive, yet has limited positive impact. It is clear that there are going to be fundamental changes to the benefit system as proposed by the Welfare Reform Bill and more support for local councils and communities to develop solutions to local issues, in the Decentralisation and Localism Bill. If we are to ensure that policy discussions are not simply dominated by calls for cuts in benefit payments and sanctions, we need to make sure that positive approaches that do give power back to communities — such as the Community Allowance — are known about and understood. Developed by local community organisations and people on benefits, the Community Allowance enables people on benefits to be paid to work in their local community — a step up into employment for people on benefit and a step up for local communities. Last week we wrote to Ministers responsible for the Welfare Reform Bill and the Decentralisation and Localism Bill asking for meetings to discuss the Community Allowance. Both these Bills provide an important opportunity to radically change the benefit system and the role of people on benefits in transforming their local communities.

The Community Allowance is supported by over individuals and community organisations. We would like to increase the number of people who know about the benefit trap and solutions such as the Community Allowance and need your help — Is your organisation or group signed up as a supporter of the Community Allowance?
