The impact of universal credit

60 people gathered for last week's Standing in the Gaps event to explore the impact of Universal Credit as it is rolled out across the city region.

We worked with colleagues at Birmingham Churches Together, Thrive Together Birmingham, Sandwell Churches Link and Black Country Churches Engaged

Discussion focussed on the need to help people navigate the Universal Credit application process.

In our final discussion we explored how we might be better networked as a Christian community to address this issue.
