The Department is committed to ensuring that all claimants, especially the most vulnerable, are supported as they move from legacy benefits onto Universal Credit.

We are working closely with a diverse range of stakeholders so the widest possible range of insights are played into the design of the pilot. Learnings from the pilot will shape the support we provide to claimants.
