Why we need you to keep filling in our Universal Credit survey

Blog by Janine McKenna, SFHA Research Officer.

Posted In

The SFHA’s monthly Universal Credit survey is out now and closes on 27 November. Thank you to everyone who has completed the survey so far.

Last month’s response rate was our best yet, with 45 associations responding. Thank you so much to everyone who took part and to those who emailed to say they would be responding going forward.

If you completed our survey last month – please keep going. We need to be able to compile month-to-month trend evidence to present to the DWP – and to do this we need a consistent response rate.

The SFHA will continue to call for a halt to the roll-out of Universal Credit roll-out until it can be proven that it is fit for purpose. Your evidence is vital in order to make this case to the government and we need to present statistics and case studies that show the reality of the roll-out on both tenants and housing associations’ arrears levels.

The link to the survey (collecting information for the month of September) can be found here. The closing date is 9am on Monday 27 November. 

If you have any questions regarding the survey, email me jmckenna@sfha.co.uk. If you have Universal Credit case studies, please email SFHA Media Adviser Kirsten Walker kwalker@sfha.co.uk.

Thank you for returning your information to us and, please, keep it coming.
