Debt and welfare advice with ‘BetterOff Salford’

Changes in national welfare policy will this month will see the gradual transition of some Salford benefit claimants over to the new Universal Credit (UC) system.

In an effort to demystify UC and the general work and benefits landscape in Salford, the council have developed a new website, ‘BetterOff Salford’. The site aims to help people in Salford make sense of their benefits; understanding what they are entitled to and answering questions around conditionality, budgeting and signposting to advice services.

If you are a Salford resident that is unsure about your benefit eligibility, or would like some help trying to get a job, we suggest first taking a look at the BetterOff Salford website, where a wealth of useful information is all in one place. On the site you will find guidance on:

  • Universal Credit
  • Calculating benefits entitlements
  • Applying for benefits
  • Appealing decisions
  • Recording job search activity
  • Finding work
  • Interviews and CV building
  • Debt advice and personal budgeting

This site has been designed to be used without the need for additional help, but there are some people who may need extra support and assistance. Please contact the council directly if you:

  • are being forced to leave your home
  • are awaiting trial for a criminal conviction
  • have complex learning difficulties
  • have any difficulties with reading and writing
  • are a young person in care or are about to leave care
