£39m for Citizens Advice to help Universal Credit claimants

Message from Gillian Guy (Chief Executive of Citizens Advice)…


This morning the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions has announced that her department will be funding Citizens Advice to deliver a new service offering end-to-end support to help people make and manage new Universal Credit claims.

We look forward to setting up the new project which will run from April 2019 and build on the existing excellent working relationships we have with the JCP and RBK… at the moment if a UC claimant needs help to make or manage their claim we can offer tailored one to one help.
