At the request of local authorities, IRRV is again running this workshop to give attendees a whizz through of the welfare benefits 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.
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.
The programme includes:
What are Welfare benefits? – a brief history
Universal Credit (an overview)
Legacy benefits – those being replaced by universal credit
What is left Behind
Review, questions and closure
The day is designed to be interactive and promotes sharing of knowledge and best practice. Timings are indicative and are subject to change on the day.
The course will be facilitated by Paula Doherty. Paula is a leading benefits practitioner, the IRRV Education Liaison Officer and a member of the IRRV Scottish Association Executive. She is also Chair of the IRRV Welfare Reform Consortium.
The workshop represents excellent value for money, with seminar fees starting at only £165 + VAT. Every third place from the same organisation booked in the same booking comes entirely free of charge.
