The expansion of Universal Credit during 2015 will allow us to build a secure platform for the introduction of Universal Support by mobilising local partnership agreements.

To ensure the right integrated local foundations are established for expansion the Department will put in place Delivery Partnership Agreements (DPA) to make available funded support for those who need extra help.
