Who is it for?
The course welcomes anybody who wants to know more about Welfare Reform and Universal Credit.
Living Options Devon and The Citizens Advice Bureau are working together to offer people help with understanding Welfare Reforms. This single session course aims to support people eligible for benefits, their family, carers and support workers to increase in confidence and to enable them to understand and help manage Welfare Reform changes better. This course will outline the Welfare Reforms and introduce Universal Credit, a new benefit system that is replacing many of the current benefits and tax credits. It is for individuals and families of working age whether they are working or not. Universal Credit is a single payment intended to meet different types of living costs; it is being introduced to simplify the benefits system. The tutors of this course are not connected to the Job Centre or the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and so will be able to share their knowledge about the benefits system in a confidential and safe space.
