How is Universal Credit coping with the current crisis? How are families coping with Universal Credit? And, with Britain set to face to emerge from the current crisis with the highest unemployment levels in over a quarter of a century, what role can and should UC play in helping to secure the recovery?
The Resolution Foundation, in partnership with Standard Life Foundation, is hosting an interactive webinar to discuss these questions. Following the presentation of the key findings from major new research on Universal Credit’s role during the crisis, we will hear from the man in charge of UC – Neil Couling – to hear about the operation of Universal Credit during this crisis. Emma Revie from the Trussell Trust will also join us to discuss the impact of the crisis on low-income families. Viewers will be able to submit questions to the panel before and during the event.
