On 15th February, the rollout of Universal Credit is extended to
Jobcentre Plus offices in Nottingham City. All jobseekers aged 18 - 60 years
and 6 months who are single, have no children and are making a new claim will
receive Universal Credit.
In addition to this change, from April 2016, there are a number of
further policy measures which will affect citizens in Nottingham including, the
benefits freeze and the National Living Wage.
Nottingham City Council have created a booklet to help Nottingham citizens
and organisations supporting them to better understand the upcoming changes. It
sets out what the changes are, what they mean for citizens and where to get
more advice and help, including support finding employment.
