Universal Credit (UC) Help
The number of Universal Credit claimants has risen dramatically in the city as a result of Covid-19.
As the Job Retention Scheme comes to an end, and many people are made redundant, there is expected to be a second large spike in UC applications. This is likely to cause issues for households whose UC income falls significantly short of their expenditure.
