The voucher system was open to abuse, fraud and presented poor value for money to the people who relied on it and the UK taxpayer. The Refugee Council report &quot;More Token Gestures&quot; also contended that vouchers stigmatised their users and were inflexible.</p><p>The administration of the Azure Card scheme is largely self-financing, non-resource intensive, and provides a less stigmatising and more fraud resistant method of support than the voucher system.</p><p> </p> more like this
