UC Full Service roll-out - the crucial issues

A major one day conference from IRRV

Grangemouth   - Tuesday 17th April 2018

IRRV Scotland is pleased to announce this major conference, taking place on Tuesday 17th April 2018, and being organised at the request of local authorities, housing associations, other organisations and IRRV members across Scotland.

The advent of Universal Credit heralds the biggest change in welfare benefits delivery in a generation and its likely impact on service delivery in local authorities is hugely significant.

As Universal Credit full service implementation rolls out across Scotland, this conference will look in detail at preparations local authorities, housing organisations and the third sector have taken – and experiences and lessons to learn to date.    

The conference will also look at associated issues - including UC easement for Scotland and preparations for devolved benefits and dealing with declining Housing Benefit caseload.

Jeane Freeman OBE MSP, Minister for Social Security in the Scottish Government, has been invited to make the Ministerial Address to conference.

IRRV Scotland is delighted to advise Scottish local authorities about arrangements for provision of the Diploma & Certificate qualifications in Scotland, provided by the Institute of Revenues, Rating & Valuation.

The course provides expert tuition covering all aspects of welfare benefits and revenues law and practice. A full prospectus is enclosed. We would be grateful if you would arrange distribution amongst relevant staff, who can thereafter register by completing the enclosed enrolment form.
