Benefits info at free event

CHANGES to welfare reform will affect a vast number of people next year - but here’s a chance to learn how you personally will be affected.

Berneslai Homes will hold a Customer Panel on September 5 from 6pm, at Barnsley Metrodome.

From April next year the changes to the benefits system will affect all claimants. They will alter how you apply, what you can claim for, and how you receive your benefit. At this session, Barnsley Council’s Welfare Rights Team will explain the process.

Berneslai Homes’ Dave Fullen said: “We’d really welcome customers to come and find out more. It’s important that they are made aware of the impact that the benefit changes will have on them.”
