Universal Support - arrangements from April 2019

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Citizens Advice is due to take over Universal Support from Local Authorities in April 2019.

The support provided by CA will cover the initial claim and preparation for first payment.

1/ What arrangements are proposed for the delivery of Personal Budgeting Support, which is currently dealt with by LAs?

2/ How does the DWP intend to deliver ongoing support to claimants who cannot budget and who cannot manage an online claim?

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Dutton
