The Department is unable to provide information on how much each Local Authority was allocated during that period. Individual payments to the 380 local authorities were made at varying times and have never been collated. To collate and reconcile all the data for budgeting and digital support in Universal Credit would incur disproportionate costs.</p><p>The information is not held for how many people have accessed universal support in 2016/17.

star this property answer text <p>There are many reasons why someone could be vulnerable or in need of additional support, and we work hard to ensure that the support we provide for each claimant is tailored specifically to their circumstances, making individual assessments of the help that each claimant needs.</p><p> </p><p>This will also be true of the migration process which will begin in 2019, with small-scale testing of up to 10,000 claimants to ensure our process works well before the volume of migration increases. We are committed to ensuring that all claimants and particularly the most vulnerable are fully supported through the migration process.</p><p> </p><p>Many claimants will be better off on Universal Credit, as currently over £2.4bn of legacy benefits remains unclaimed. Universal Credit will ensure (through the managed migration regulations which will be subject to parliamentary scrutiny later this autumn) that 700,000 more households, including those who are vulnerable, will receive the money they are entitled to.</p><p> </p><p>More severely disabled people will also receive higher payments under Universal Credit, with around 1 million disabled households gaining on average about £110 more per month. Transitional protection payments will also ensure that no-one loses out at the point of transition to Universal Credit under the managed migration process.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Work coaches delivering Universal Credit undergo comprehensive training designed to equip them with the tools, skills and behaviours required to provide a high quality service to all claimants. Specific training and guidance is provided for working with different vulnerable groups and those with complex needs.</p><p>We are providing all work coaches with an additional two day workshop, designed by experts in mental health and psychologists, and delivered where possible alongside external mental health partners. The training began in November 2017 and will be completed by end of March 2019. Some further examples of other learning currently undertaken by work coaches include:</p><ul><li>Introduction to Working with Customers with a Mental Health Condition – 6 hours</li><li>Drugs and Alcohol Awareness – 3 hours</li><li>Complex Needs – 4 ½ hours</li></ul><p>The draft regulations provide the flexibility and fail-safes to protect vulnerable claimants and those with complex needs. Earlier this month we held a large scale stakeholder event, engaging with over 70 organisations, including those representing vulnerable claimant groups, seeking their detailed input on the managed migration process. We are designing a process that works well for everyone and ensures a smooth transition with continuous support.</p><p> </p>
