Scottish Government introduces Universal Credit flexibilities
Angus Housing Association Director, Bruce Forbes, has described the arrangements put in place by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) for the introduction of Universal Credit as “shambolic”.
On behalf of our members, the SFHA met with Scottish MPs at Westminster as part of its joint campaign with the other UK housing federations to make essential fixes to Universal Credit.
The four UK housing associations launch their Five Asks Campaign to fix the shortcomings in Universal Credit.
For immediate release: SFHA has today responded to plans announced for a new bill to set targets to reduce fuel poverty.
