Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to our first online event on 15th May 2020. As promised, we are in the process of uploading the sessions to our YouTube channel and all sessions are now available!
The first session starts with a welcome from our Chair followed by a fantastic workshop on ‘Catching up with COVID-19 benefit changes‘ led by Tom Messere (Big Book of Benefits, NAWRA Committee). There is also a Q&A session included.
Part Two focuses on a workshop by Gareth Morgan (Ferret, Welfare Rights Advisers Cymru, NAWRA committee) who takes us through examples of how the new rules and rates work after the April and COVID-19 changes, including how Universal Credit and legacy benefits compare and more detail on how the benefit cap can negate many of the increases.
Part Three features the lively information exchange, wonderfully handled by our Vice-Chair, Daphne Hall and featuring contributions from a range of members and committee representatives. the session ends with a live feedback session!
Slides and notes available in the members area.
