Universal Credit Guide

CUF’s Research and Policy Team have produced a short guide: ‘Universal Credit: Everything You Need to Know’ about what the new benefits system is, who it’s for, and how to support someone applying for it.

Our hope is this guide will equip you and those in your networks supporting individuals moving onto Universal Credit to respond with practical wisdom and sensitivity. We’d love you to read, use and share it!

You can access the guide online or in printed format. If you would like to request printed copies to distribute to your networks or churches, please email Miriam Brittenden (
