About this course
This two-morning course is aimed at those supporting women fleeing from domestic abuse.
Many women fleeing domestic violence will need to claim benefits in their own right, and for the majority of cases that will be universal credit (UC), especially if they have children.
The course covers:
- The benefits available to women fleeing domestic abuse
- How the introduction of universal credit affects these claimants
- The effect of the benefit cap on claimants
- The process for challenging decisions
The course is suitable for those with little or no benefit knowledge.
