What's On January to March 2019
Welcome to the quarterly edition of the
Communities for Work Plus brochure
Communities for Work Plus (CfW+) offers support to all residents in RCT who are looking to
get into employment, training or volunteering.
We are also able to offer in-work support to those on low incomes who are looking to retrain or
up-skill.

CfW+ is available across the whole of RCT and is divided into
4 delivery areas
• Rhondda North (covers the Rhondda Fawr and Mid Rhondda areas, including Trealaw)
• Rhondda South (covers the Rhondda Fach, Porth and Taff areas)
• Cynon (covers the Cynon Valley, Glyncoch and Ynysybwl)
• Taf (covers Rhydyfelin and Hawthorn, Pontypridd, Church Village and Llantrisant areas)
Each delivery area has its own community office and team who deliver the programme.
In this brochure you will find information about all the activities available between January to
March 2019 and how to get involved.

Universal Credit – Information for residents of RCT
Universal Credit is a single monthly payment for people in or out of work. It replaces some of the
benefits and tax credits you might be getting now:
• Housing Benefit • Child Tax Credit • Income Support • Working Tax Credit
• Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance.
You can Verify your identity and make a UC claim online via www.gov.uk
There are good tutorial videos on YouTube; search for ‘making a Universal Credit claim’.
Before you open a Universal Credit account it is good to have:
• An email address • A contact telephone number • A Bank, Building Society or Credit Union account
• Rent costs (landlord statement) • Wages (Payslips) • Family details

If you need support in making a UC claim, your first port of call is your local Job Centre Plus. You can
book an appointment by phoning 0800 328 5644 or you can walk in to your local Job Centre Plus and
