DWP release resources to help support homeless claimants with UC

Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Last week the DWP launched two guides to help homeless claimants with UC. One for people themselves and one for supporting organisations.

The guides recognise that homeless people can be some of the most vulnerable in society and it’s important they get the support they need. They have been developed with a range of stakeholders in the homelessness and advice sectors – to make sure they provide the best possible advice.

There is a link to the guide for people who are currently homeless and need to make a UC claim here

If you have any feedback about the guides we would love to hear from you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch at frontline@stmartinscharity.org.uk
