Disability Rights Handbook (44ed) Apr 2019- Apr 2020
The handbook provides in-depth, comprehensive guidance on the benefits system, explains how social care operates around the UK and includes information about other services and resources for disabled people.
Now that Universal Credit has been rolled out across the UK, the migration of claimants on existing means-tested benefits onto the new system is due to start next Summer. Many claimants are likely to be worse off in the long run. At this uncertain economic and political time, keeping up with the new rules is crucial.
Fully updated for 2019/20 it includes:
- Benefits for people living with health conditions, injury or disability and for carers, children and young people
- How the system works, how to claim and how to challenge a decision
- Support for people in education or work, not in work, looking for work or in retirement
- Getting and paying for care and support services
