Welfare Reform

I was recently at a conference which focused on welfare reform and its relation to the criminal justice system in L&B and Forth Valley Community Justice Areas. Yes, there’s a connection, but it’s more than that. Today I’ve been reading a few bits and pieces about the impact medical assessment and re-assessment is having on some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Links to the articles are below if people would like to read them.
