Universal Credit Briefing

Tue 02/06/15 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

A free briefing session with speakers from two councils with experience of the
Universal Credit system.
Universal Credit will be rolled out in the Winchester District this September. Although it
will only affect first-time, single claimants at the outset, it is important that we are all
prepared to support people through the change – and gear up for greater numbers in
the years that follow.
This briefing session offers the chance to hear from two councils with experience of the
Universal Credit system, as well as to see how the claim form looks ‘for real’ on the
web. You will learn what other organisations are doing to help claimants, and have a
think about what more you could be doing to ensure that no one falls through the net.
This twilight session is designed for voluntary organisations and other agencies
working with potential claimants.
