Evidence to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on hunger

December 2015

Evidence from the Feeding Britain Working Group on Benefit Administration to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on hunger.

This briefing responds to the recommendations of the APPG on hunger in their 2014 report, Feeding Britain, on addressing issues around benefits administration to reduce food poverty and hunger and provides an update on how well these issues have been addressed by the Department of Work and Pensions over the past year.

It reviews evidence including the experience and expertise of members of the working party, freedom of information requests, parliamentary answers and national data, including a survey of members of the National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers. 

The working party on benefits administration was formed at the request of the Feeding Britain national summit in June 2015.
