The remaining offices operating Live Service saw an overall fall of 1.5% in the count over the same period.</p><p> </p><p>Universal Credit will tend to increase the claimant count because it extends our support to find work to claimants who have never received this support before.

So will partners of Universal Credit claimants.</p><p> </p><p>The roll out of this support is more advanced in Full Service areas, and as we bring these people onto Universal Credit, it is to be expected that the claimant count will be higher than it would otherwise have been.</p> more like this
