Event description

Description

Did you know that..... UC will be paid to one member of the household (and include ALL benefit entitlement)?

Did you know that...... there may be a 6 week wait until people get any money?

Did you know that.... housing element will be paid to claimants, not to landlords?

If you answered 'no' to any of the above questions then this session is for you.. it is an opportunity for frontline staff to find ways of working together to give the best possible support to local people claiming Universal Credit. We will note key issues that have arisen elsewhere for UC claimants and find creative and practical solutions for local people. We will make sure we all know what each other are doing and how it all fits together so that noone falls through the gaps in services. We will be setting up systems to gather and share evidence of unintended consequences of policies where they cause hardship and suffering so that we can campaign for change to alleviate suffering.

Please note: This is NOT a full training session on UC but is a workshop on partnerships to help local people. Light refreshments will be provided...
