Child Poverty Action Group report: Rough Justice

CPAG logo

People can lose the effect of work allowances, be inappropriately benefit capped while in work, and lose out on support for housing costs. These problems should surprise nobody, having been raised in parliament as far back as 2012 when universal credit was still in the design stage.

This according to the August 2018 report (pdf) from Child Poverty Action Group on  the universal credit.

Joseph Rowntree Foundation call for proposals: How Well is Universal Credit Supporting People in Glasgow?

Joseph Rowntree Foundation logo

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation have released a call for a project to carry out deliberative qualitative research to explore the experiences of Universal Credit (UC) claimants, as full service is rolled out in Glasgow.

They want to hear from claimants, work coaches and local support agencies about what is working well, and what needs to change, to help drive improvements to policy and practice.

Applications close on 31 August 2018.
