The Beveridge Report and the Creation of the Welfare State

In December 1942 the government released a report authored by Sir William Beveridge in which he wrote “A revolutionary moment in the world’s history is a time for revolutions, not for patching”. His report laid the foundations for Britain’s post war welfare state while the world was still at war. This resource is based on an exhibition that was held in the Library Gallery at the London School of Politics and Economics in January – April 2018 to mark the 75th anniversary of the publication of the Beveridge Report and the 70th anniversary of the Welfare State. Images and textual evidence for this resource are taken from the heritage collections in the Library of the London School of Politics and Economics (LSE). William Beveridge’s papers are held in LSE Library as are papers belonging to numerous politicians, activists and campaigning groups. Transcripts and images of original documents are provided on the powerpoint slides and the teachers’ notes provide support contextual and background information. These resources can assist with learning activities around the understanding of causes and consequences, making links between different perspectives and awareness of the roles of different individuals, ideologies groups and ideas.

According to the Foundation for Women's Health, Research and Development, 66,000 women in England and Wales have experienced FGM, with 7,000 girls at risk.
Problems that cause poverty in Africa.Quick View

Problems that cause poverty in Africa.

This resource uses other resources from the TES website. It is the basis of a unit on Poverty in Africa that I use with my S2 class in Scotland. This resource has been amended following feedback received from kee88ly. Following comments from globalthinker I changed the title as my intention is to show how certain problems cause poverty. I could just as easily have looked at problems that create poverty in Glasgow. I am a teacher in a single teacher department in a Scottish school and I would welcome some more feedback on this resource. Thanks.
