Full Universal Credit Survival Guide

As the impact of full Universal Credit becomes clear, this FREE half-day seminar will explore whether landlords have the right strategies in place to protect budgets and minimise risk. 

With 8 out of 10 social housing tenants moved on to Universal Credit falling into rent arrears, leadership teams and Boards are now reviewing their plans to ensure they can protect the long-term future of their organisations as the policy is rolled out across the country. 

This half-day seminar will look at how improved engagement with customers and utilising new technology is proving critical to helping landlords to protect rental income. 

The event, in association with Housing Contact, will look at the lessons learned from housing associations and local authorities who have experienced full Universal Credit rollout, and how landlords are reshaping policies and services with the help of innovative technology.

  • The National Federation of ALMOs will talk about their latest research into the impact of Universal Credit and the strategic challenges being faced
  • John Doyle from Housing Contact will discuss the findings from research carried out with HQN on developing a strategic approach to tackling Universal Credit
  • Citizens Advice will explain why they are campaigning to get Universal Credit rollout paused and the impact it is having on communities
