Course background

At the request of local authorities, IRRV is running this new workshop to give attendees a whizz through of the Welfare Benefit landscape - the detail that local authority, housing association and other key staff require to know.  It is fully updated to ensure the latest UC information is included

Aim - The workshop is ideally suited to staff who are required to have a better understanding of the main welfare benefits. It is also suited to the wider benefits and welfare sector involved in assisting or advising those who have, or need, to claim. 

Programme

  • Universal Credit (an overview)
  • Legacy benefits – those being replaced by universal credit

  • Disability Benefits
