Universal Credit – Update

As principle architects of Universal Credit – first conceived in our 2009 report Dynamic Benefits –we constantly analyse DWP data, collect third party analysis and speak with frontline charities who represent the most vulnerable in society, as well as front line staff at Job centres, to get their view of how Universal Credit is being received on the ground. This briefing offers an update on how Universal Credit is being received by claimants, how it is helping to save the Government money, helping to encourage the long term unemployed back in to work, and reducing the risk of many people becoming trapped in a life on benefits.
