Course background

At the request of local authorities, IRRV is running this new workshop to give attendees a whizz through of the Welfare Benefit landscape - the detail that local authority, housing association and other key staff require to know.  It is fully updated to ensure the latest UC information is included

Aim - The workshop is ideally suited to staff who are required to have a better understanding of the main welfare benefits. It is also suited to the wider benefits and welfare sector involved in assisting or advising those who have, or need, to claim.
