Universal Credit

An essential course for those wanting to keep up to date with likely benefit changes as they affect adults, people with disabilities or older people. The introduction of Universal Credit from 2013 will fundamentally change the current system of benefits and tax credits. This course looks at these in detail and examines how these proposals sit within the wider reform agenda. The course will:

  • Explain how Universal Credit is expected to work
  • Go through other major proposals including the scrapping of Disability Living Allowance
  • Show how these proposals work with other welfare changes

Who Should Attend:

All social workers, advisors and service planners who work with people on benefits or living in poverty, money advisors and those who work with charging regimes or financial assessments
