Mixed age couples and pension credit

From 15th May 2019 – pensioners with a working-age partner will be PREVENTED from claiming Pension Credit.

Such ‘mixed-age’ couples will have to claim Universal Credit instead, losing out at a rate of over £7,000 per year.

However, if they claim Pension Credit NOW they will be able to remain on Pension Credit thereafter (as long as they continue to meet its rules).

This guidance gives more detail, including how to claim.Pension Credit.2.Claim it NOW.(mixed age couples)

Autism coproduction events in Coventry and Warwickshire for adults and children

Even when it’s expected, an autism diagnosis can have a big effect on the person diagnosed and their family. You might be trying to cope with a condition you don’t know much about and learning to live together in new ways, or supporting people to do this. Thinking about what comes next can be a daunting prospect for everyone.

As a professional you may feel frustrated that there isn’t more practical help you can offer adults and children with autism and no learning disability.

Grapevine, Coventry and Warwickshire Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups are working with professionals and local families to find different ways of coming together to solve problems early and lay the foundations for a wonderful life.

We’re all on this journey and hope that by looking beyond the process of getting a diagnosis and understanding how getting things right early on, we can build a promising future for all those with autism, their families and the communities they are connected to.

Join us so you can influence these developments and be involved in the Walks and Talks and Ideas Factory that will follow.

The first step is to go for a walk and talk out in the open where families, individuals, professionals, commissioners, community workers can come together and talk about how things are at the moment and tell each other about their experiences and how they have overcome some of the challenges.

The second session is an ideas factory where we will build on some of the ideas and potential solutions that came out in the walk and talk and develop actions to move them forwards.

Children are welcome at the events but please let us know if you plan to bring them and their ages so we can ensure appropriate activities are arranged.   Support with travel expenses can be provided for individuals and their families to attend the events.

Having access to superfast broadband allows you to:

  • Browse the web faster

Please Note: Even though this cabinet has been upgraded, not every property connected to it is guaranteed to achieve superfast speeds due to some properties’ distances from the cabinet and/or the quality of their copper connections.
