Fighting together to change Government welfare reform policies

Rebekah has acted in a number of recent challenges to aspects of the government’s welfare reform policies including the case of R (SG) v SSWP in which the Supreme Court found that the benefit cap breached the obligations in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
