Six years ago in July, a special project was launched to support local people who were affected by the benefit cap or needed applying for Universal Credit online.

Just in the year 2017/18 the Welfare Reform Task Force have:

  • Helped 1467 people with Universal Credit
  • Given 836 people benefit advice
  • Supported 134 people into work

The Welfare Reform Task Force brings together specialist advisers from Barnet Homes, the London Borough of Barnet and the Department for Work and Pensions.

Happy 6th Birthday to the Welfare Reform Task Force!
