Description Universal Credit is coming to Bradford!

After 20th June most people in Bradford will no longer be able to make new claims for old benefits such as Housing Benefit, Employment Support Allowance, Tax Credits or Jobseekers Allowance. This fundamental change in the benefits system is being introduced council by council, and our neighbours have seen a lot of confusion when UC is introduced.
