So the Government's made a few changes to their plans to roll out Universal Credit in Herefordshire, mainly it's been delayed until June 2018.

Before June though, they'll be a change to the way single people looking for work can claim benefits. For a while now it's been Universal Credit, but from January 1st it's back to the old system of Job Seekers Allowance (until June when it'll be Universal Credit). Confusing but hopefully the below might help.
