Universal Credit Event
The event is to showcase services in Wrexham and also to specifically highlight the impact of Universal Credit on service users and services. The events purpose is to demonstrate the need of a multi-agency approach to Universal Credits, without which our service users would not cope. Already, it has lead on to evictions, loss of benefit and no access to private accommodation. It will also highlight the difficulties some services will face now with the introduction of the FCA registration.
There will be representatives from the DWP present, who will be running a type of workshop, where attendees will be able to simulate a universal credit account and discover for themselves the issues faced.
