Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I am requesting a copy of the guidance issued to DWP decision makers regarding the making and administration of universal credit budgeting advances. Unlike the guidance for budgeting loans from the social fund which is available as part of the publically accessible Decision Makers Guide, I can find no publically available guidance on how and when universal credit budgeting advances in the Advice for Decision Making collection on the DWP's website.
