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

Keywords: Social policy, administration, benefits, employment, incapacity, disability, benefit claimings, health limitations, public services, Sociology of Health & Illness
