Welfare Benefits Day 2 (Advanced) - Maximise Income for your Tenants and Residents
Are you a landlord? Do you work for a Housing Association, ALMO or Local Authority? Are you a Letting agent? Do you work with people with low income and disabilities? Do you require knowledge of the current Welfare Benefits available? Do you work with vulnerable people?
If you answer yes to any of the above questions, then look no further, this course is for you. It not only provides you with an insight of the Benefits world but also provides you with an explanation of when and how people can claim benefits if they have low income or have vulnerability issues.
