Abstract

Universal credit is currently rolling out across Scotland and is set to be the most significant change to the welfare state in years. Research by charity Unlock has indicated that at least 75% of people who leave prison will not have paid employment to go to upon release. Most will be dependent on benefits and/or other financial help for a period after their release. Pamela Morrison provides a summary of the details, timescales and implications, for those working with young people on their release from custody.
