Welfare Benefit Reform

You may be aware that the UK Government’s benefit change programme is making major reforms to the welfare system. If you’re of working age (16 – 64) and claim benefits you may be affected.

The changes might mean you’ll need to apply for a new type of benefit and in some cases you may receive less money.

For more information, please refer to the attached leaflet or log onto Renfrewshire Council’s website –renfrewshire.gov.uk/benefitchanges where you can watch a view and read some leaflets which explain the main changes in more detail.  

If any of the changes affect you or your family and you need advice, please contact our Welfare Rights Officer.
