Universal Credit – Less Than a Week to Go!

Published 23 November 2018

We are now less than a week away from the introduction of Universal Credit (UC) Full Service in Wakefield.

The Full Service of UC will be introduced in Wakefield from 28 November 2018 and will replace six benefits with a single monthly payment similar to a monthly working wage.

The six benefits being replaced are:

•             Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance

•             Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

•             Income Support

•             Child Tax Credits

•             Working Tax Credits

•             Housing Benefit

 UC does not include help with your Council Tax. If you are claiming Universal Credit, you can still contact Wakefield Council (or the local authority in your area) to apply for help with your Council Tax.

 You will need to claim UC if you are making a new benefit claim and are of working age. You might also need to claim UC if your circumstances change.

 Are you ready? You will need an email address, a mobile phone and a bank, building society or credit union account to receive payments.

 You can find further information about UC here or by visiting GOV.UK. You can also contact Universal Credit directly on 0800 328 5644 or through your Online Journal for help and support.

 Universal Credit is a big change, but we are here to help. If you need any help with UC or your finances generally, you can contact Cash Wise at www.getcashwise.co.uk or on 01977 724651.

Kettlethorpe – a perfect place for afternoon tea!

Published 17 June 2015

 

The kettle boiled in Kettlethorpe Community Centre on Wednesday (10 June) when cakes provided by WDH, Asda and Wakefield Council were served as part of “The Big Lunch”.

The annual nationwide event is designed to bring neighbourhoods together and foster friendship and community spirit.

The tea party attracted dozens of people who enjoyed fresh strawberries, scones and cakes washed down with tea made by Asda Community Life colleagues Ann Sapi and Lisa Staggs.

Some of the guests were existing users of the centre, including a group of sequence dancing friends who meet on Monday evenings and had seen a poster advertising the event.

WDH Tenant Involvement Officer Chris Croxall, who joined Councillor Monica Graham and Wakefield Council Engagement Officer Joe Ackroyd in serving the tea, said: “It’s a partnership approach between WDH, Wakefield Council and Asda and we have tried to arrange an event in each of the neighbourhoods.

“It’s wonderful to see so many people enjoying a chat over a cuppa and making new friends.”
