Event description

Description

We want to alert you to the fact that something big is happening across the region.

UC Full Service is to be rolled out in the three Angus Jobcentre areas from November 2017. This will be one of the biggest changes in the benefits system in over thirty years. It is expected that this will affect thousands of current working age claimants and families across the Angus region. It will radically change the means tested benefits people are receiving and in the way in which they have to make and manage a claim.

These events will aim to bring you up to date on Universal Credit and how it will be implemented in Angus. We aim to develop a shared understanding of Full Service and to strengthen the network of support services. It will provide you with an opportunity to network with front line workers across a range of services and for you to consider the impact its going to have on the people you support.

The sessions are not aimed at you becoming a welfare rights expert, they are intended to give you an overview of the changes and where you can signpost people for further help and advice. It is thought there will be significant numbers of people who will be affected by this change and we wish to make sure that as many frontline staff who come into contact with people in a variety of settings are aware of this change. The sessions will provide information on the support and advice services that may be available to people you are working with, who might experience difficulty as a result of transferring to Universal Credit or making a claim.
