YHN’s Universal Credit Implementation Manager, Donna Gallagher, gave evidence to the Work and Pensions Select Committee in Westminster this week. The committee was interested to hear our experience and that of our tenants around Universal Credit – the new payment that replaces six “legacy” benefits including housing benefit.
