£25,325 was awarded to Advising Communities. £20,325 was awarded to employ a part-time Debt Caseworker to provide specialist casework and support to indebted Universal Credit (UC) claimants in Lambeth. This would tie in to and complement Advising Communities existing Universal Support service within Lambeth (funded by Lambeth Council), which assists people with their UC claims and support them in developing digital and personal budgeting skills. A further £5,000 was approved to support action-research by Advising Communities on the impact of the roll out of UC in Lambeth over 2018/19. This would link in with £5,000 already approved by United St Saviours Charity for research in Southwark.
