Universal credit and self-employed people – workshops for advisors

The DWP is running workshops around the issue of self employment with respect to Universal Credit. The workshops will take place on 11 April, 3 May, and 6 June, from 10am, at Truro Jobcentre.  Attendees need only pick one date, and the workshop is free.

They will be providing an overview of how self employment is defined and treated within Universal Credit. This event is aimed at support workers, and workers who may have to assist clients with making or maintaining a claim for Universal Credit. It assumes a basic level of knowledge of Universal Credit so please do not book unless you have attended one of their Universal Credit overview sessions.

The event will be delivered by Steve Matthews and Kim Mabon of the DWP Cornwall Partnership Team.

If you wish to attend, please email Kim Mabon for an invitation – on her new email address of Kim.Mabon@dwp.gov.uk
