Welfare benefits for people of working age courses

To provide staff who work with families and disabled people of working age, with an overview of the welfare benefits system, the eligibility criteria of specific benefits and the ability to advocate effectively. Whilst ensuring that service users are receiving their full entitlement to financial support in terms of welfare benefits.

Dates will be published on this page when courses are available.  This is aimed at Dorset Council staff in the first instance, but we would look to offer non Dorset Council staff any spaces still available nearer the time at a cost of £40

Ideally you may want to consider looking for another Training provider as we cannot guarantee space for your staff.

The Dorset Council Adult and Community Services current pricing policy is under review and may change later in the year

By the end of the course staff will be able to:

  • recognise the eligibility criteria for the benefits that their service users, and their carers should be entitled to
  • signpost service users and carers to correct agencies in order to make a benefit application
  • understand the appeal process and be able to assist service users and their careers in challenging disputed claims
