The Commons Work & Pensions Committee is looking into how DWP supports vulnerable benefit claimants and whether its approach to safeguarding needs to change.

importance of the conceptualisation and operationalisation of vulnerable claimants, experiences of different claimants, as well as recommendations on the Universal Credit Six Point Plan Framework.
