The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is pleased to announce that the Universal Credit Transition Fund Grant application process is now open.
The fund will enable external partners to help people who most need extra support to move closer to or into work, including supporting them to make a claim to Universal Credit (UC) where they are not already in receipt. The DWP is looking for local charities, community groups and other organisations of any size which are well placed to identify and help vulnerable people struggling to access and engage with support, particularly when moving between other arms of state provision and the welfare system.
The DWP is looking to work with creative and innovative partners across England, Wales and Scotland who are well placed to identify and help vulnerable people who are struggling to engage with support.
They will consider and welcome bids from all suitable organisations including those with existing innovative ideas that could be scaled up.
