discuss the impact of Welfare Reform.
Cllr Paul Ellis, chair and John Bibby, ARCH CEO, together with
the chair and representatives of the NFA, will meet Lord Freud,
Minister of State to discuss Welfare Reform, on 7 June. We'll also
further discuss the findings of the
ARCH/NFA Welfare Reform survey.
When we met for the first time in March, we agreed to undertake
further work to update our survey and establish channels of
communication with the director general's office to improve two-way
dialogue and communication as the role out of Universal Credit
We'll update ARCH members on the outcome of these ongoing
discussions in due course.
