Universal Credit (UC) was introduced by the Government as a new welfare benefit to replace several existing benefits including Housing Benefit, combining them into one single monthly payment.
UC applies to people who are both in and out of work, and of working age.
As the charitable arm of Torus, Torus Foundation is helping to provide support to those who could be affected by the changes.
Although you might not be affected at the moment, any change in circumstances could affect you in the future i.e. having a child, moving in with your partner, moving to a new address and more many more which could have an impact.
If you are required to make a claim, you will need access to the internet as claims must be made online.
