‘Mind the Benefits Cap’ event advises people about welfare changes

To help residents understand and prepare for the benefits cap being implemented this autumn Catalyst organised an information event.

At the event, held on 14 September 2016, Catalyst Gateway advisers were joined by representatives of housing associations such as A2 Dominion, as well as organisations like Ealing Advice, the National Careers Service, and the Department of Work and Pensions. In total twelve organisations were present, offering visitors in-depth information on all matters relating to the cap.

The attendees were able to get information about what the benefits cap is, what it means for their finances, what action they can take, and which organisations can support them. There was also advice about housing and debt solutions, employment and training, and legal support.

If you have any questions about how the benefit changes will affect you, then please contact enquiries@catalystgateway.org.uk
