This call for ideas sought views on how to support people in work and getting Universal Credit to help them achieve financial independence.
This call for ideas sought views on how we can support people in work and in receipt of Universal Credit to help them:
- increase their earnings
- develop their skills and qualifications
- achieve financial independence
It also sought views on how we could trial ideas that would support employers to promote training, development and progression opportunities for low paid employees who are claiming Universal Credit or tax credits, and have the potential to work more.
The call for ideas was aimed at employers, behavioural economists, social psychologists, think tanks, welfare to work providers, academics, charities, application designers and those providing existing services.
More information is available on some of the Universal Credit trials and pilots that are underway.
