Housing Benefit Reform Conference, Thursday 24th March 2016 – London

With the Spending Review and Autumn Statement heralding further changes to Housing Benefit, Capita's national Housing Benefit Reform Conference is designed to ensure local authorities and social housing providers are equipped to support the local population and the workforce through the changes to the benefits system.

London, United Kingdom, February 06, 2016 --( As housing associations adapt business plans to sustain growth amidst reductions to social rent and local authorities get to grips with implementing Universal Credit (UC), this timely event provides an ideal opportunity to examine cross-sector approaches to meet the day-to-day and long-term demands of migrating to UC.

As the Government forges ahead with roll out of UC, do not miss this opportunity to ensure your workforce and organisation are best positioned to achieve a smooth transition into the new system.

Benefits of Attending
-Hear from a local authority which is well on its way with implementing Universal Credit and explore how it has structured resources and staff to support the migration from Housing Benefit to Universal Credit
-Discover how housing associations are supporting the local population to get online and redesigning services so that digital becomes the preferred channel
-Consider how peers are developing initiatives to identify when a tenant is accruing arrears at the earliest possible stage in order to provide effective, targeted support and minimise sanctions
-Review examples of robust partnership working between local authorities and housing associations to support the most vulnerable tenants and examine how partners are reshaping their Housing Benefit team
-Explore how one housing association is effectively using and monitoring the use of APAs
