Universal Credit & You

It’s Friday!

Just a quick note to share with you some information on Universal Credit. I attended a presentation this week at Jobcentre Plus  which was all about the changes coming to most areas soon and will be coming to our area this year.

The changes are significant, but if you prepare yourself you’ll be able to cope with a different way of doing things. Here is the link to a guide from the DWP which can be found online:

If you think you are going to need some help with getting online check with your local Council to see if there are any free courses you can enrol on to get ready for the changes.  Here is a link to ours in Barnsley

Have a great bank holiday weekend.
