Colin Lindsay, "New Perspectives on Health, Disability, Welfare and the Labour Market"
English | ISBN: 1119145511 | 2015 | 192 pages | PDF | 2 MB
Bringing together researchers from the fields of social policy, economics, sociology and clinical psychology, this book offers new evidence on the inter-related problems faced by disability claimants, and identifies important lessons for policy.
Explores how reducing the level of UK benefit claiming among those with health limitations has been a priority for successive governments
Argues that current policy fails to reflect the evidence that people on long-term disability benefits face a complex combination of barriers to work and social inclusion
Demonstrates that there is a need for continuing inter-disciplinary research on the nature of the disability benefits problem and the efficacy of current policy solutions and public services
