star this property answer text <p>Potential customers can use the Pension Credit Calculator <a href="https://www.gov.uk/pension-credit-calculator" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/pension-credit-calculator</a> to check if they are likely to be eligible and get an estimate of what they may receive. People wishing to claim Pension Credit can do so by calling the Freephone number 0800991234.</p><p> </p><p>There are over 1.6 million people already claiming some £5.4 billion in Pension Credit, but the Government wants to ensure that all pensioners eligible can claim the Pension Credit to which they are rightly entitled. In Easington there are around 3,000 pensioners already claiming Pension Credit.</p><p> </p><p>On a national basis, the DWP targets activity on engaging with people who may be eligible to benefits at pivotal stages, such as when they claim State Pension or report a change in their circumstances. The DWP uses a wide range of channels to communicate information about benefits to potential customers; including information on <a href="https://gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://gov.uk/</a>, in leaflets and by telephone. DWP staff in Pension Centres and Jobcentres including visiting officers are able to provide help and advice about entitlement to benefits, as are staff in Local Authorities who administer Housing Benefit.</p><p> </p><p>We welcome and encourage initiatives to promote take up of Pension Credit by local organisations who may often be best placed to understand the local circumstances and needs in the community. To help facilitate this, we have developed the Pension Credit toolkit, as an on-line tool for agencies and welfare rights organisations to use in order to encourage Pension Credit take-up. It can be found at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pension-credit-toolkit" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pension-credit-toolkit</a></p><p> </p><p>The toolkit contains resources for anyone working with pensioners and includes guides to Pension Credit. It also contains publicity material and guidance designed to help older people understand how they could get Pension Credit and help organisations support someone applying for Pension Credit as well as ideas for encouraging take-up. The toolkit also provides links to information about disability and carers benefits.</p>

Already, we have set up three youth voice pilot projects to enable young people to shape national policy, including a Youth Steering Group, Young Inspectors Group and a digital youth engagement project. The Youth Steering Group has been working across government to inform policy, including work with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to conduct a review on environment and climate policy.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2019, government announced that it will be developing a youth offer to set out its vision for young people. Officials have been working closely with Step Up To Serve (SUTS), young people and #iwill campaign and youth sector partners to develop the first stages of this work. DCMS continues to work with all relevant Government Departments across this agenda, in particular the Department for Education.</p><p> </p><p>On 30th September, the Chancellor announced a £500million Youth Investment Fund to support the creation of new youth centres and opportunities for young people. We will be incorporating lessons learnt from the #iwill campaign and Fund into the development of this new programme and will continue to work closely with SUTS and the wider youth sector. It is a priority that the Youth Investment Fund is designed to enable young people to have as much of a say and a choice in what activities are available to them as possible.</p>
