Personal Budgeting Support Is offered to claimants who receive Universal Credit. Your work coach will discuss what is available to you.
The support they offer can be general money advice, making you aware of online tools available to you or it can be bespoke, tailored advice that is delivered by a member of our Housing Options Team
The Personal Budgeting Support delivered by the Council can be arranged via the work coach as mentioned above or can be initiated yourself by calling 01353 665555 to make an appointment.
