Wrexham Libraries have a new resource, which takes you through making a claim for universal credit as well as how to use the jobs portal.

It is an easy to use step-by-step guide that covers:

  • Universal Credit – the process and how to apply
  • Universal Jobmatch – learn basic computer skills, how to search for jobs, create and upload a CV
  • Employability and Job Skills – interview skills and preparing for a new job

In addition to this, it can also also teach basic computer skills such as using a mouse.  The site has some detail about preparing for an interview, CV writing tips and much more. Each section is broken down into modules and you can check to see which modules you have completed. This invaluable resource is available from the library’s web pages (follow the online services link) and can be accessed at home or in the library but you will need a valid library card to use it

Universal credit is a benefit to support you if you are working on a low income or are out of work. It is a monthly benefit to help with your living costs and you need to apply for it online.


Useful, free resource

The guide is a useful, free resource that can aid people when trying to apply for universal credit.  It can be accessed at home or in the library and takes you through the application process step-by-step. If you are struggling to make a universal credit application this online resource is definitely worth a look.

To access the guide you will need to be a library member.  Membership of Wrexham’s libraries is free. You can join online HERE or you can pop into your local library. Please remember to take proof of your name and address.
