Event details

With welfare reform continuing to have an impact upon people’s lives, this half-day seminar provides an analysis and update on:
• the rules for under-occupation in the social rented sector (otherwise known as the Bedroom Tax) and its ongoing impact, and the changes to the Housing Benefit cap thresholds;
• the impact of the scheduled changes to Housing Benefit in relation to young people aged 18-21, and other changes in the pipeline for the social rented sector e.g. Local Housing Allowance;
• ongoing effect of the change from Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payments on disabled claimants, and implications for the future;
• how the Department of Work and Pensions’ sanctioning and benefit delays have been impacting upon claimants;
• and the impact of Universal Credit roll-out – the main rules and structure, winners and losers.

Will interest
