UCN meetings aim to give information and support to voluntary and community groups that are providing services to residents who have been affected by the introduction of Universal Credit in Southwark. Please pass this on to anyone you think would benefit.

We have used the information you provided at the last network meeting to shape this agenda. We really appreciate your input. If you requested a slot on the agenda to share information about your organisation’s services, we will be in touch for the October meeting.
