The welfare rights and responsibilities of disabled people are increasingly subject to contestation and redefinition. Whereas previously both governments and the public viewed the relatively unconditional claims of long-term sick and disabled people to welfare as legitimate, in recent decades conditionality has been increasingly applied to disabled people in receipt of social security benefits in the UK. In future, the majority of people in receipt of incapacity benefits will be expected to actively engage in training or work search activities or face benefit sanctions.
