Housing Systems: Combating poverty and sustaining tenancies.

Welfare Reform
The Essentials

Make sure you're up-to-date with all the changes!

"This course was just what we were looking for - it's been a fab course, delivered in a really fresh and engaging way - whilst covering all the key changes for 2019.
It's created a real buzz around the office - the changes have significant implications for many of our tenants - but we came away with tips on how to minimise the impact.
 All the delegates found it really useful and have said that it will have a positive impact on their clients."
This full-day workshopis a hands-on, practical approach looking at the recent and forthcoming changes to welfare benefits.
By the end of the course, delegates will understand:

  • The Universal Credit SDP Gateway Condition,
  • The impact lifting the 3+children UC gateway will have on families,
  • The changes for mixed age couples - safeguarding future income,
  • How to take advantage of these rules and avoid the pitfalls,
  • Tips on dealing with common UC problems.

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

Many are not aware why the problem has arisen or how to deal with it.

Some don't even know that they are missing out on money they are entitled to.

This course aims to give delegates the knowledge and confidence to tackle these issues. 

Devised especially for those staff who have a basic knowledge of Universal Credit and are now ready to delve into the complexities of the system that they need to know for their job.

This course aids learning by using case studies and discussion and is different to most other UC training.

You will not be disappointed if you book this course.

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