DWP operates on a scale that is almost unmatched anywhere in Europe and most people in Britain come into contact with us at some point in their lives.
We lead on the government’s policies for welfare, pensions and child support. We help people to find jobs and employers to fill vacancies. We make payments to jobseekers, pensioners, disabled people, parents and carers. Our staff are making the largest changes in the welfare system for a generation, including the introduction of Universal Credit and the new State Pension.
