Local MP Peter Aldous and Waveney District Council have welcomed a Government decision which seeks to resolve issues faced by Universal Credit claimants regarding rent payments.
Waveney residents are encouraged to take advantage of council support in preparation for the full roll-out of Universal Credit next week.
New public access terminals are now available in local branches of the North East Suffolk Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) to help Waveney residents apply for Universal Credit.
Having been one of the first local authority areas in the country to deliver universal credit to benefit claimants, Waveney District council Leader Colin Law welcomed the recent visit of Government Minister Damian Hinds MP to discuss the impact of the scheme.
Work to create a digital map showing free PC and Wi-Fi locations in east Suffolk has now been completed – the first of its type in the County!
On 25 May, the full Universal Credit Service is being rolled out at Lowestoft Jobcentre.
