OPFS offering UC sessions to professionals working with single parents
Would a better understanding of how Universal Credit (UC) works help you to support single parents?
We are running a series of free half-day UC training sessions for professionals working with single parents, commencing in October. These will take place in our Edinburgh city centre office.
Sign up for one of these free sessions without delay, as places go quickly.
Part of our wider training programme, and updated for 2019, topics in these sessions include:
- An introduction to universal credit
- Eligibility criteria
- How to apply
- How payments are calculated
- Advice on Scottish aspects of UC
- What single parents need to do in order to remain on the benefit.
The sessions are interactive and include case studies, a chance to do a calculation yourself, and time for discussion. You should have a basic knowledge of benefits to get the most from the course.
Ongoing access to our expert advice on UC and other issues will be available through our Lone Parent Helpline.
