This workshop will address mitigating Universal Credit. They will be run and managed by Jon Brownbill, former Head of Income collection at Equity Housing Association, where their team implemented a rent first strategy and delivered arrears of less than 0.5%.

This workshop is aimed at heads of income and will discuss various income collection strategies that can be applied across organisations that help mitigate Universal Credit. Spaces are limited to one person per organisation. The session is interactive so please do share your experiences and approaches.

Almost one in every two (45%) of UC claimants in Scottish social tenancies are on direct payments compared to just 29% across Britain. However, the surge in numbers for landlords of those claiming UC is becoming increasingly problematic. On average, from 2017 to 2018 each JCP, in Scotland, experienced a 191% increase in UC claimants in social tenancies. This at a time when there are less than 40,000 Scottish social tenancies claiming UC.

Mobysoft has detailed research into the effects of Universal Credit on Scottish landlords and is happy to share this with you at the Income Best Practice Workshops.
