Amber Valley Liberal Democrats will be holding our next local speaking event on Friday 29th November. The topic for the evening is the benefits system.

Our speaker Maggie, a Welfare Rights Officer, will be discussing Universal Credit, the bedroom tax, welfare legislation and food banks. 

She will walk us through the current welfare benefits system, bust some common myths, and help us understand how the system impacts people’s lives.
