The Early Warning System

The Early Warning System collates case studies and evidence to demonstrate the impact of changes in the social security system on the wellbeing of children, their families and the communities and services that support them.

If you're an adviser working with people who have been affected by changes to the social security system and want to share details of a case:

What is the Early Warning System?

The Early Warning System (EWS) gathers information and case studies about the impact of welfare reform on children and families across the UK.

How you can get involved

If you or any of your colleagues work with individuals and families who have been affected by changes to the benefit system, and you think that someone needs to know about their experience, then you should get involved.

Our impact

This is what the Early Warning System has achieved so far.
