The next swathe of changes to the Welfare Reform system started rolling out six weeks ago and already they are causing concern and anxiety for some people. The new ‘Universal Credit’ brings together six benefits and tax credits and replaces them with a single monthly payment, paid directly to the customer who now becomes responsible for paying their own rent. Anticipating issues and questions from Eden residents, Eden Housing Association has developed a series of training and support events called ‘Benefit Matters’.
For more information about the ‘Benefit Matters’ sessions, contact Jenny Webb, Eden Housing Association’s Community Development Officer on 01768 861400 or email [email protected]
