“An essential guide which tells you what universal credit means for you in simple English”. – PHILLIP TAYLOR MBE & ELIZABETH TAYLOR OF RICHMOND GREEN CHAMBERS

" The book is very easy to read, clearly organised and packed with extracts from the law, example case studies and other good practice points. It tackles the claims and payments process, the new sanctions regime, potential problems, interaction with other benefits and impact on specific groups. It also includes a useful glossary of terms (‘disregard floor’ anyone?) and a helpful index. An excellent overview of the ‘new regime’ and well worth a tenner of any advice agency’s money!
