Universal credit roll out

Moving considerably faster than an advancing glacier, from February of this year, Universal Credit is extending its reach and grasp to cover more groups in greater depth, in more parts of Scotland.

Regardless of which camp you belong to, we hope to hear more from you about your experiences over the coming months through the advice line, by email or the Early Warning System.
