Universal Credit rolls out at THESE Liverpool Job Centres today - three weeks before Christmas

Warnings that families will be left 'destitute' before December 25 as controversial new system comes in

The government's heavily criticised benefit reform Universal Credit will roll out at two Liverpool job centres today - just weeks before Christmas.

And there are claims the new system will make vulnerable families in the city 'destitute' before what is supposed to be a day of celebration on December 25.

There are fears across the city with the roll-out set to take place for claimants in Everton and West Derby - two areas with major issues of deprivation.

Universal Credit - which combines six existing benefits into one payment - has been widely criticised for making the lives of vulnerable people harder and pushing more people into poverty.

Chief amongst the concerns is the reported waiting times of five weeks or more for claimants to recieve their first payment - meaning thousands of Liverpool's most needy could be left with no cash before Christmas.

The REAL Reality in the Everton Area

The stark warning comes as all claimants in Everton and West Derby JobCentres were today switched to the controversial benefit.

Everton councillors Jane Corbett and Ian Byrne have already seen the hardship and struggle Universal Credit (UC) has caused people in their ward.

Cllr Byrne said: “I’ve never seen anything like it.

“You have to understand, it’s all hidden – but we have people coming in who have nothing.

“You can read about it in the ECHO, but when you get someone coming in and saying to you, ‘I have nothing in my cupboards, I’ve got no electricity ... I don’t know where to turn’.”

Looking at those buildings Paul in ruin when they could be renovated with a realistic budget to house the social rented sector is just sad. Handing them over to communities with a grant would also work, but it`s complicated and no doubt the land belongs to the council or landowner.

Mr Corbyn brought up UC and poverty and halting UC in the PM questions today in the commons and all May could come out with was the same garbage about Labour making the economy poorer by spending money and that UC is working blah, blah…

I`m asking Santa for an early gift. To bring us all a Happy New Year early and GET THE TORIES OUT.

The staff at my jobcentre were strangely happy on Tuesday. I asked what was going on as it was a bit unnerving. The workcoach told me that they're going full service the next day. They were eating chocolates and acting like Christmas had come early! All I can think of is they must be getting something out of it. Not good for us though. But when it's all up and running a lot of them will be redundant, they won't be laughing then...

They`re all `in it together` Dizzy. They could be setting themselves up to fail if a general election topples the Tories if one is held. Would be nice if UC meant we didn`t have to attend a job centre at all, or perhaps twice a year since it`s supposed to be a digital online system/phone line assisted service. That doesn`t seem to be stopping claimants from having to go in twice a month. Two things that have changed for the worse are the job search criteria (35 hours a week) and the no more signing on with a pen/pad.

I've witnessed this bullshit atmosphere before Dizzy and its all just that ;) .

There is absolutely NOTHING different about the live and full service imo .Its just yet another title change and their probably not doing sod all technically speaking other than as per usual trying to make claimants lives hell. :whistle: :evil:
