The welfare system treats individuals of all genders equally. It provides better support and incentives to claimants to enter employment and progress in work.

DWP is committed to ensuring all claimants have the tailored support they need. We also continue to provide for groups who may need additional help. For example, Work Coaches can tailor conditionality where appropriate to the individual, particularly those with health issues or caring responsibilities.
