An interesting discussion took place in the aspiration and wellbeing group around the Governments benefit changes that will come into place next year.  There is a real need to educate people on the impending changes.  Benefits will be cut on refusal of jobs, 3 moths for first refusal, 3 years for 2nd.  People will also be required to pay their own rent etc. out of benefits rather than previously when it went directly to landlord.  There is a real worry that money will be spent inappropriately and that families will be negatively affected. benefits will be paid monthly rather than weekly which will mean a real change for people.

We need to start educating people now for the changes
