Wednesday 5th December 2012 – Edinburgh
The introduction of Universal Credit and direct payments from October 2013 will be the biggest change to the welfare system in over 60 years. Capita's 2nd National Housing Benefit in Scotland Conference comes at a crucial time to provide guidance on mitigating the risks of impending reform.
Key experts will provide you with guidance on overcoming the challenges of under occupancy, financial and digital inclusion and improving partnership working with the private rented sector.
Take this opportunity to engage with early adopters and gain advice on implementing strategies in your organisation to manage the transition to the new housing benefits system.
