In this webinar Deven Ghelani discusses how some local authority Revenues and Benefits teams are using their data to punch above their weight.
Listen back to hear how other finance teams have:
- Used standardised government data sets to identify in advance which individual households will be affected by the lower benefit cap and by how much. They can take proactive steps and prioritise support to those most heavily impacted.
- Used standardised government data sets to identify which 18-21 year olds will lose their Housing Benefit as a result of changes in government policy, and which will be required to ‘Earn or Learn’. Some of our clients have commissioned targeted support on the basis of this analysis.
- Used standardised government data sets to identify exactly how much is lost through Pupil Premium funding as a result of households failing to make a claim for means tested free school meals, and exactly which households should be making a claim. This is worth over £1m to most London Boroughs.
