This chapter traces the government's attempts to remove structural barriers and disincentives to work within the disability-benefits system itself, and to provide financial incentives to do paid work. It looks at the intention and mechanism of various new structural and administrative arrangements, and what evidence there is about the outcomes. The chapter finds that although there have been advantages and new opportunities for some people, conflicts and tensions remain.

Keywords:   structural barriers, disability-benefits system, financial incentives, administrative arrangements
