Universal Credit (UC) is on its way, with roll-out in Sandwell scheduled for 14th November 2018. Many of us will have heard a lot about it already, in national as well as local news. But what exactly is Universal Credit? What will it mean for those entitled to it and how might local VCS groups and other support agencies and frontline professionals look to support people around the challenges UC might create?
SCVO is organising jointly with the DWP, a session which is taking place on Tuesday 18th September from 11am – 12.00 noon, at its offices – 1st Floor, Landchard House, Victoria Street, West Bromwich, B70 8ER.
This short briefing session is for anyone working within the Voluntary and Community Sector in Sandwell who want to find out more about Universal Credit. The roll-out will bring significant changes for many Sandwell residents.
So whether you work directly with people who will be on UC or just want to find out more, you are welcome to come along, participate and ask questions
