Welfare Reform Training (Glasgow) Q3/Q4 2013

Thu 28 November 2013 @ 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Single parent families in Scotland are now beginning to feel the impact of the benefit changes that were introduced in April 2013. If you work with lone parents and want to know how these changes affect them, then come along to one of our information sessions.

This course provides an overview of the changes that have already been implemented and those that will be introduced during the course of 2013.

It covers Child Benefit, tax credits, Employment & Support Allowance, housing benefit, council tax reduction, Universal Credit, Personal Independence Payment and the Scottish Welfare Fund.

A basic understanding of the current benefit system will be assumed.
