Professor John Flint discusses the findings of the Welfare Conditionality project, which looked at two particular situations concerning welfare. One is where people’s access to welfare is restricted or stopped – for example, by benefit sanctions or rules. The second, equally important, is welfare support – for example, through family intervention projects or help to find work. Generally with these kinds of sanctions and support, governments aim to get people to change their behaviour. This research looks at all the effects of sanctions and support on people’s lives.
