Local Welfare Support Scheme Briefings

As many of you are aware there are going to be major changes in welfare support from April. This is going to have a major impact on the poorer members of our society who already find it difficult to cope. We have just received the following invitation to sessions to help people understand the changes.

Community Care Grants and Crisis Loans for general living expenses (including rent in advance) will be abolished from April 2013. New local provision will be administered by local authorities in England .

Colleagues are invited to attend a joint update from Advice Leeds & Leeds City Council on the Council’s Local  Welfare Support Scheme which comes into effect on 2nd April 2013.

Because of the new scheme coming into effect around Easter time, we are looking to do  awareness sessions both ahead of go live and post go live.

The update sessions are at the City Museum, near Millenium Square.

Each session will host 60 attendees and will commence promptly at the times specified.

Sessions are to be 2 hours long, with the following dates & times:

Tuesday     26th March 2013     12:30 – 2:30
