This half day training course provides participants with a dynamic overview of the proposed and already implemented changes initiated by welfare reform.
It covers reforms and potential reforms to benefits for children, working age and older people, including means tested benefits, non-means tested benefits, child tax credits and working tax credits, disability benefits including PIPS and ESA and housing benefit. It also outlines the different elements of Universal Credit and how they might apply to single people, families, disabled persons and to housing costs.
The course is aimed at advisers, policy workers, those involved in lobbying and campaigning, community champions interested in advice work and those working in the subject area to update and refresh their knowledge in this ever changing subject matter.
The course will run on Friday 4 October 2013. It will be delivered at Advice NI offices in Belfast. The course runs from 9.30am to 1.00pm.
