At the request of local authorities, IRRV is again running this workshop to give attendees a whizz through of the welfare benefits 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.

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.

The programme includes:

  • What are Welfare benefits? – a brief history

  • Universal Credit (an overview)

  • Legacy benefits – those being replaced by universal credit

  • Income Support/ Job Seekers Allowance/ Employment Support Allowance/ Child and Working Tax Credit/ Housing Benefit

  • What is left Behind

  • Contributions based Job Seekers Allowance/ Contributions Based Employment Support Allowance (new style ESA)

  • Disability Benefits

  • Personal Independence Payments

  • Disability Living Allowance

  • Carers Allowance

  • Review, questions and closure

The 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.
