I write to advise you that IRRV is running this popular workshop to give a foundation level introduction to Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction.

It aims to introduce the subjects of Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction and place them in context. The course is aimed at relatively new staff or any staff who require a refresher in the legislation and administration of HB/CTR schemes.

The programme includes :

  • What is HB & CTR?
  • How HB/CTR is claimed
  • The Calculation - Basics
  • Income & Capital
  • What can HB/CTR pay for?
  • How HB/CTR is paid
  • Overpayments & Subsidy
  • Introducing complex areas

The day is designed to be interactive and promotes sharing of knowledge and best practice. Timings are indicative and are subject to change on the day.

This course will be facilitated by Paula Doherty. Paula is a leading benefits practitioner, the IRRV Education Liaison Officer and a member of the IRRV Scottish Association Executive. Paula is also Chair of the IRRV Welfare Reform Consortium.

The workshop represents excellent value for money, with seminar fees starting at only £145 + VAT. Every fourth place from the same organisation booked for this course (and made in the same booking) is entirely free of charge.
