In-house course
Universal Credit is more complex than anyone expected and those complexities are causing huge problems for claimants.

For claimants living in sheltered housing there is the added complication of how the rent will be funded via HB or UC?

This course aims to give delegates the knowledge and confidence they need to tackle these issues and ensure their residents get the right advice. 

This course aids learning by using relevant case studies and discussion. 

Book this course in-house for just £985+vat (for up to 16 delegates).
