Steven, and others who may be interested - we’ve been told Glasgow will be starting with managed migration in October.

Maybe not one for the map just yet but assume there will be a wider announcement of more areas soon.

thanks will,

where did you find this out?

I was actually delivering training recently and someone asked about the october date for glasgow and I hadnt seen or heard it yet either.

It’s here: https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/welfare-rights/news/item/universal-credit-managed-migration-to-roll-out-to-south-east-wales-and-central-scotland-in-october-2023

Central Scotland District for DWP means Glasgow and East Renfrewshire

Thanks Sean.

Stephen, not relevant to Glasgow now but I think in general local authorities have been hearing first, other advisers have sometimes found out ‘early’ by asking partnership managers.

DWP said at one point there would be 2 months notice but I’m not sure that’s being adhered to (though maybe it is for LAs?)

That’s what I heard Will - that the LA’s are given about 2 months notice but aren’t meant to pass it on. Someone with contacts at Glasgow CC told me about the likely October start date at the end of July

Thanks Sean,

Seems an unnecessary cloak & dagger approach!

Thanks Shawn.

It occurred to me that stat-xplore might be a good way to check which jobcentres fall into which JC+ region, if that’s something anyone is wondering about. If you choose a dataset it will give you the option to drill down by area, region or jobcentre.

If you choose the most recent month available for your dataset then you can see the geographies in the dropdown list & I assume it’s fairly up to date….

Sad day in map land ....

We’ve decided to retire the map, on the basis that it’s getting less helpful / more at risk of not accurately reflecting the nuances of the roll out programme ...

However, in its place, we’ve come up with this: https://www.rightsnet.org.uk/resources/uc-managed-migration-overview

Hope it’s useful ...

As always, your feedback is welcome, for example if you spot any problems with it or want to suggest other info it might useful to include.

Cheers - Shawn

Thanks Shawn.

I agree that it’s more useful having the list, on balance, as the map would start to look very busy indeed at this point.

One thing - the September 23 ‘discovery’ areas of Northumberland, Manchester and Harrow. It’s not quite all legacy benefits is it? Isn’t it all legacy benefits EXCEPT people on irESA only or irESA & HB only?

Think it would be good to clarify that just in case of confusion. Ta.

It does say: “NB: ‘All legacy benefits’ below includes tax credits, but not currently employment and support allowance only or employment and support allowance with housing benefit.”

But I agree with Will, it isn’t the clearest moniker. Maybe just change it to ‘Most legacy benefits’ or some such 😊 ?
