Universal credit information guides
Universal credit full service is just around the corner, starting in Bristol in March 2018. In order to help people to prepare for these changes early, Bristol City Council has circulated two guides about the changes – one for individuals, and one for local agencies and organisations who support local communities.
As well as explaining what Universal Credit is, and what it means for both existing and new claimants, these guides also cover upcoming changes to Bristol job centers, as some will be closing/relocating.
So if you work with people who may be affected by these changes, or know of other partner agencies who do – please circulate these guides and encourage people to prepare themselves for the changes that are coming.
