Event description

Description

Full Service Universal Credit is to be rolled out in the Dundee Jobcentre area from November 2017. This will be one of the biggest changes in benefits and it is expected that this will affect thousands of current working age claimants and families in Dundee. It will radically change the benefits people are receiving and way in which they have to make and manage a claim.

In order to ensure that people in Dundee are supported and made aware of potential changes, a series of awareness raising events, targeted at frontline staff across all ranges of services have been planned for October 2017. These events will aim to bring you up to date on Universal Credit and how it will be implemented in Dundee. It will also 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.

These sessions are not aimed at you becoming a Welfare Rights Adviser, 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 in the city 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 and can help signpost people to the support and advice they need. A programme for all of the events are attached and they will be held on the following dates:

16th October, 2 p.m. - Brooksbank Centre, Pitairlie Road, Dundee DD4 8DG

23rd October, 2 p.m. - Mitchell Street Centre, Mitchell Street, Dundee DD2 2LJ

30th October, 2 p.m. - Menzieshill Community Centre, Orleans Place, Dundee DD2 4BH
