Introduction

This virtual classroom seminar will provide delegates with guidance on the welfare benefits system, identifying the main pitfalls, complexities and fast-changing pandemic-related measures which dominate the benefits system in 2020-21.

It is aimed at people working in a legal setting who need to feel confident and updated in their benefits knowledge.

N.B. The course is not suitable for specialist benefits caseworkers and will not address immigration-related benefits issues.
