Welfare conditionality fails to prompt ‘behaviour change’ in most claimants, new research finds

Five year academic study also finds that sanctions routinely trigger profoundly negative personal, financial and health outcomes

Welfare conditionality fails to prompt ‘behaviour change’ in most claimants, according to new research by academics funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.

Led by the University of York, the final report on the five year 'Welfare Conditionality Project (2013/2018)' - that is based on the results of repeat interviews with welfare service users drawn from nine policy areas including universal credit, jobseekers and disabled people - finds that benefit sanctions and mandatory claimant commitment requirements do not prompt ‘behaviour change’ or provide meaningful improvements to job prospects or work outcomes for most claimants.
