The Advice Dorset Partnership provides a programme of events and training locally.  Currently (2021) events are online.



Benefits Forum: Thursday 15 July 2021

Benefits updates from the DWP, the Local Authority Benefits team, Citizens Advice and other agencies.

It's 2 years since the last Advice Dorset Partnership Benefit Forum in June 2019, and is fair to say that a lot has changed since then…..!

This free online event will be a chance to hear from partners from the DWP, Dorset Council and other agencies on issues including:
Benefit changes due to Covid19 and what might be next…

  • Universal Credit
  • Legacy benefits
  • Jobcentre Plus services
  • Local Authority updates on Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction
  • Benefits for those with long-term health and disability issues
  • Information on other projects including Fuel Poverty, Food Insecurity, Age UK benefits services etc.

This event is aimed at frontline workers (paid and volunteers) who support and/or advise people who have benefit issues.

There will be an opportunity to send in 1 powerpoint slide summarising key information about your services, which we can show during the mid-morning break and circulate afterwards.

Booking on Eventbrite.
