The Social Welfare Appeals System: Accessible & Fair? Report was commissioned by Community Law & Mediation, formerly Northside Community Law Centre) in 2005.  In 2003 we received funding from the Combat Poverty Agency to carry out a review of the accessibility, effectiveness, independence and fairness of the social welfare appeals system. This report is the result of this task. It recommends changes to increase access for appellants to independent information, advice and representation and to make the system more accessible, particularly for the most vulnerable.
