Overview of Welfare Reform
This session is suitable for social workers and support workers who do not have specialist knowledge of the benefit system. It will give an overview of the welfare reforms which have been introduced by the Welfare Reform Act 2012, including Personal Independence Payment, Universal Credit, the under-occupancy deductions for social tenants (‘bedroom tax’), changes to the social fund, Council Tax Support, and the benefit cap.
“I felt the delivery was excellent. Pitched at the right standard for the lay person to understand.” “Very knowledgeable trainer.” “Good overview for me as I am relatively new to the role.”
