Understanding Universal Credit Roadshows

Cardiff’s Money Advice team is hitting the road this summer to support residents to understand Universal Credit. As part of the managed migration of ‘legacy benefit’ claimants to Universal Credit, thousands of households in the city have already moved on to Universal Credit, while many more will be migrated over coming months to replace their current claim.

Universal Credit- Changes from April 2024 that will affect you
