In the Green Paper 21st Century Welfare we invited responses to a number of models including universal credit and welcomed views on the impact on people covered by equality legislation. Stakeholders were also consulted through the usual mechanisms including policy forums organised by DWP or its agencies, where age organisations were represented. The responses to 21st Century Welfare were published alongside the Command Paper Universal Credit: Welfare that Works.

Copies of both documents are available from the House Library. They are also available from the website below: www.dwp.gov.uk/policy/welfare-reform/legislation- and-key-documents/universal-credit/.
