Housing Benefit

A range of courses run to cover all aspects of entitlement and all housing circumstances. These courses are usually tailor-made to suit the needs of the participants. We will be happy to put together a specific programme for you. Sessions are run at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels and can cover:

  • Establishing entitlement, claims and payments
  • Handling delays, overpayments & backdating
  • Controls & the private sector

Who Should Attend:

Housing & support workers, key workers, project managers and anyone involved in managing rent arrears

Housing Benefit is due to be replaced by Universal Credit from 2013, although specific provisions will continue to apply to Supported Accommodation. See our new courses for more information.
