Universal Credit was introduced to some Southwark claimants in early 2017, with full roll-out starting in September.  The administration problems have resulted in financial and emotional stress for many claimants, and a surge in demand on advice agencies who are struggling to keep up.  In response, United St Saviour’s is investing additional funds into a consortium of local agencies over the next critical 12 months. Southwark Law Centre and Community Advice Southwark will be able to increase advice and support available, and Advising Communities will lead the research into how different groups are affected, and the most effective ways of supporting them. For additional information please see our current & recent Community Investment grants page
