Universal Credit Savvy workshops

For several months TNT has been equipping people to help people applying for Universal Credit.

Transforming Notts Together (TNT) has piloted a series of Universal Credit Savvy (UC Savvy) workshop courses, raising awareness of the new working-age benefits. TNT is seeking to build capacity amongst churches and Christian groups/projects. The UC Savvy course was developed by the Just Finance Foundation and Transforming Communities Together (Lichfield), which is part of the Together Network.

The 1-hour UC Savvy workshop covers:

  • What Universal Credit is
  • The implications of receiving Universal Credit and what the major changes for recipients are
  • Where and how to get help with Universal Credit
  • How to get ready for the Universal Credit application and interview

Becca Menzies delivered 7 sessions in Notts during a 6 month pilot. To find out more about the course and the feedback received, you can read her report on our Credit Savvy work so far here.

If you would like Transforming Notts Together to come and run a session at your church or organisation, then get in touch with Hannah Buck.
