Employment, training and claiming benefits

Waltham Forest Housing works in partnership with the Council to develop relationships with other employment and training providers. Some of whom provide services in public libraries around the borough. Contact Income Maximisation on 020 8496 4197 or email income.maximisation@walthamforest.gov.uk for more information.

Universal Credit

Universal Credit (UC) is a new type of financial support for people of working age who are looking for work or on a low income. It was introduced to Waltham Forest in May 2015  starting with new single claimants who previously would have been eligible for Jobseekers Allowance, including those with existing Housing Benefit and Tax Credit claims.

For more information including details of how to make a claim online please visit the Gov.uk website or telephone 0800 055 6688 to make a claim in person. This process can take up to several weeks to get the payments sorted.
