Sir John Graham Lecture 2011 | Renewing Compassion
A vision for welfare that frees rather than traps the poor
After decades of modern welfare programmes failing to solve the problem of intergenerational poverty, we need to admit that the system is broken. Welfare, originally devised as a way to support the poorest and most vulnerable in society, is now too often trapping the poor in the very condition it was supposed to alleviate.
In the UK, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith, is challenging the broken system, and shares his vision for the future of welfare – a future in which dignity, hope, and aspiration are open to all.
