South Area MANs Meeting - When Austerity Bites - Bite Back!
Over the next few months there will be many changes to welfare and housing benefits which will have a great impact upon many of our children, young people and children that we support.
Whilst continuing to provide all our local practitioners with an opportunity to find out more about Early Help, network and share good practice, this MANs is focussed on making sure that we are equipped to signpost our families to agencies that can help them to adjust to their new circumstances.
As a practitioner you may not need to be an expert in Universal Credit (or similar), but you may need to know an agency that is. So come along and meet those organisations, ask the questions and get some information to take back with you.
