Local needs and national eligibility rules: The City Strategy experience of localisation
Welfare to work policy in Great Britain has traditionally been planned centrally to ensure even application across areas. More recently questions have been raised about the ability of such a system to address the requirements of those workless people with the most complex and severe needs. Accordingly attempts have been made to enhance local decision making and agenda setting within welfare to work. This article considers one such initiative in Great Britain â€“ City Strategy â€“ and examines the extent to which the initiative transferred powers to local partnerships and how and where the partnerships were able to exercise autonomy, and where there were constraints.
