Under the circumstances of a war ravaged continent, Britain was faced with disturbing social challenges that needed urgent consideration, with political incapacitation through heavy spending at the war that made national policy a weary agenda for both the government and public. In light of the main theme captured in the Report, welfare state became the centre piece for the appropriate revolution that would make the society at pace with social justice and recognition (Jones and Lowe, 2002). Ostensibly, welfare state in Britain as suggested by the Report would be improved if focus was devoted to equitable opportunities, women welfare, migrant workers and tackling the five giants. This discourse enumerates the contributions of these findings in revolutionising the global welfare system on whose improvement since then is a reflection of the recommendations of the Beveridge Report.
Lord William Beveridge was assigned the task to compile the state of social welfare that appeared to be faced with many questions despite the level of civilisation at Britain whose expectation would have supported a better performance (William Beveridge Foundation, 2011). While the assignment and delivery happened in 1942, the effective law guiding the affairs of social welfare was a 1601 legislation known as Elizabethan Poor Law Act. A civilisation experiencing dramatic changes in the social front as Britain during the close to three and a half centuries duration of time must have responded with an appropriate interest to cater for welfare needs (Lavalette and Pratt, 2002). Perhaps this reflected how the policy and governance regarding welfare in Britain was out of touch with the remarkable transformation that the society had experienced since the effective date of the law. Support for the poor as a national policy was by far being carried out by an out-dated framework
