Our R U Ready for Universal Credit is a free DROP IN for those individuals needing help and guidance when it comes to Universal Credit. Working closely with Springboard, this course will raise awareness of public access to computers in the Coalfields and support participants in making their applications for Universal Credit.

Outreach sessions will provide support on the basics of using a computer or digital device including tablets and smart phones through informal drop in sessions. Focused on the requirements set by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), sessions will be delivered by qualified staff to support participants in accessing the internet for online entries onto Universal Jobmatch, the DWP ‘Find a Job’ portal and Universal Credit Full Service (UCFS).

Where there is a skills gap of maths and English competency, individuals will have the opportunity and will be encouraged to, achieve City and Guilds qualifications in Information Communication Technology (ICT), maths and English as well as work on enhancing their employability skills.

Springboard and ShARP will facilitate an effective signposting process ensuring participants access the support they required first, participants will have the opportunity to access digital skills or tailored benefit and money management advice when they are ready to engage in each aspect. ShARP will provide a benefits advice check and support to maximize your benefit support.
