Benefits and Universal Credit Preparing for 2018 19


This series of CIPFA Benefits and Revenues Service (CBRS) benefits events, examined the detail and impact of the announcements and new legislation, introduced the various changes as well as identifying the support services required to be delivered as the process of transition from the live universal credit service to the full service progresses

Delegates benefited by:

  • Being made aware of the latest information on the development and roll-out of the government’s welfare reforms and universal credit and how this may impact on local authorities’ services and costs.
  • being updated with the latest policy announcements and caselaw
  • gained an understanding of the impact of universal credit and other welfare reforms on local services
  • developed an awareness of the issues relating to universal credit full service and the planning and preparations required to deal with the impact on local benefit services and claimants
  • identified how those services will need to develop and change in order to provide effective support services to benefit recipients

The presentation slides and accompanying notes for the CIPFA Benefits Workshops in March are now available to download below
