The GMWRAG Greater Manchester Universal Credit Forum grew directly from our invitation to Neil Couling, director general of Universal Credit, to come talk to a GMWRAG meeting in Trafford, which he kindly did back in October 2018. You can read all about that here but only if you’re a GMWRAG member and have the appropriate password.
The first meeting took place in January 2019 and we’ve created this new section as a means of making the minutes available to all attendees as well as anything else of relevance.
The second meeting will be hosted by Stockport Help With Benefits team on Friday the 17th of May 2019 in BS 1.22 (N Atrium) in the Business School at Manchester Metropolitan University. See https://venues.mmu.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/11764-Business-School_First-Floor.pdf and https://venues.mmu.ac.uk/venues/business-school/
This will be an a.m. meeting (as this is the only way we could make this work) and will run from 9:30am to 12:00pm (midday) at the latest as it will be followed by a full afternoon GMWRAG meeting.
The draft agenda currently reads:
- Vulnerability – no right to reside, emergency funds and accommodation.
- Feedback on actions from the last meeting e.g. the accessibility meeting held in Tameside.
- Plans for the next meeting.
We welcome additional agenda item suggestions but please bear in mind this meeting has been designed to have a restricted agenda so issues can be explored in depth.
The draft minutes of the first meeting are available by clicking on the link below or the sub page which appears when you hover over the menu item for this page. You will need the password in order to access the minutes. If you’re not a GMWRAG member or an attendee at the meeting then (again) you won’t have the password!Follow @GMWRAGtweets
