DWP staff working with claimants complete extensive training that prepares them for their role. Specific training is provided for working with different vulnerable groups, with guidance to signpost claimants to relevant support, and these circumstances will be recorded on a claimant’s online account. We have started to deliver additional training in mental health that will help work coaches to build their expertise and provide the most effective support.</p><p>We take a number of steps to identify individuals who will need support in making a claim to Universal Credit. For example, we identify claimants either prior to or at the initial claim stage, to discuss what support mechanisms need to be in place to make a claim. This can be through discussions with their Work Coach, the Universal Credit helpline and/or through home visits.</p><p>From April 2019 Citizens Advice (England and Wales) and Citizens Advice Scotland will deliver a new ‘Help to Claim’ service to claimants, including the most vulnerable, who are making a new Universal Credit claim or moving from a legacy benefit to Universal Credit because of a change of circumstances. The Help to Claim service offers tailored, practical support to help people make a Universal Credit claim up to receiving their first full correct payment on time. This service will be available online, over the phone and face to face through local Citizens Advice services.</p>

In January, Government published its landmark Domestic Abuse Bill in draft form and its consultation response setting out a package of other non-legislative measures to tackle this issue. These include commitments to fund a range of specialist domestic abuse services. More information can be found on Gov.uk: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/domestic-abuse-consultation-response-and-draft-bill" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/domestic-abuse-consultation-response-and-draft-bill</a>.</p><p>We have also carried out a review of how domestic abuse services are locally commissioned and funded across England. We have worked closely with sector partners, drawing on their data, expertise and knowledge and taken account of the findings of an independent audit of provision of domestic abuse services across England, led by Ipsos MORI.</p><p>Following the review, we intend to consult on potential measures for sustainable delivery of support for victims and their children in accommodation-based services for domestic abuse across England shortly.</p>
