What is to be done about Universal Credit?

January 19th 2018

This event is now fully booked sorry.

Universal Credit is the biggest shake-up in social security in a generation.

With more than 400,000 households in Wales expected to be claiming Universal Credit by 2022, it is vital to find out how it operates and how it could affect households in your area.

15th March 2018
9.00 – 13.00
Cardiff City Hall, Cathays Park, Cardiff


This half-day conference is a great opportunity for stakeholders from the public, private and third sectors to learn what we know about the roll-out of Universal Credit and the impact of the changes on claimants.  You’ll also be able to share ideas about how to make Universal Credit work as well as possible.

Speakers include:

  • Huw Thomas, Senior Partnerships Manager Wales, Department for Work and Pensions
  • Lucy Joyce, Research Director, IPSOS Mori
  • Lisa Hayward, Welfare Reform Policy Officer, Welsh Local Government Association
  • Lindsey Kearton, Senior Policy Officer, Citizens’ Advice Cymru
  • Hayley MacNamara, Policy and Programmes Manager, Community Housing Cymru


The cost is just £75 per delegate including VAT and payment fees.

The cost is extremely competitive and you also have the assurance of knowing that any surplus generated is retained in Wales and reinvested in Bevan Foundation activities.


Bevan Foundation subscribers and supporters get to hear about our events first – vital as many sell-out quickly. It costs from just £3.25 a month.
