Welfare Benefits Awareness for Social Care Staff

   

Britain’s benefits system is complex, and subject to seemingly constant change. Millions of pounds go unclaimed each year, at least in part because of difficulties that clients (and staff) have in making sense of the system.

We offer a range of courses that can be precisely tailored to your needs and those of your client groups. Whether you need an overview of the structure of how different benefits relate to and affect one another,
in-depth knowledge of a particular benefit or group of benefits, or how the Tax Credit system works, we can custom-make you a course to suit.
