The changes came into effect from 28 June 2023.
Richard Bampton, A2Dominion’s Head of Income , said: “We know the cost of living crisis is impacting many of our customers, and our Tenancy Sustainment Team works hard to help residents access the support available to them.
“These changes to Universal Credit mean that, subject to meeting certain criteria, parents may be able to claim hundreds of pounds more in support. The changes will also help parents increase their hours and start work. We encourage residents to find out if they could benefit from these changes.
“Our team is also available to help with a range of other matters, including money management and budgeting. If you’re struggling with paying your rent and service charge, the sooner you get in touch with us, the quicker we can provide you with the relevant support”
