    Created: 02/12/2015

    Fife Voluntary Action held a packed Fife Employability Forum on Wednesday 25 November 2015. Over 50 people attended from across Fife's employability sectors to discuss the roll out of Universal Credit (UC) in April 2016.

    Attendees heard presentations from:
    • DWP;
    • Edinburgh Council, WEACT and Community Renewal to give an 'on the ground' perspective of UC from Edinburgh who have been through this transition;
    • Fife Council on Welfare Reform;
    Participants also discussed what we, as providers, need to put in place to support clients through this transition.

    The note of the Forum, slides and handouts can be found below.
