The case for local welfare funding

Can the Government afford to scrap the Local Welfare Assistance Fund?

Bhavani Vadde hears from the Hastings Furniture Service and the Conservative MP Amber Rudd, who both say cutting the Local Welfare Assistance Fund will prove more expensive for ministers down the line.

Administered by local organisations, the fund helps the South East's neediest people - paying for furniture, food vouchers, and other assistance.
