LEGGE, K., 2007. Receipt of Discretionary Social Fund Awards : findings from the Family Resources Survey. CRSP research report ; 5. Loughborough : Loughborough University
CRSP research report 5
The Centre for Research in Social Policy has been commissioned by the
Joseph Rowntree Foundation to research the current role and future
direction of the Social Fund. The research is focused on the Discretionary
Social Fund. This is one of two quantitative working papers produced as part
of the research. It is based on secondary analysis of the Family Resources
Survey and examines receipt of Discretionary Social Fund awards.
The other paper uses data from the Family Expenditure Survey/Expenditure
and Food Survey and examines the questions: who uses the Discretionary
Social Fund?; what are the variations in amount of loans and grants, and
loan repayments, between families?; and what is the Social Fund used for?
(Magadi and Beckhelling, 2006).
