Ealing and Northampton Councils Extend UCDS

Ealing Council and Northampton BC have extended their contracts with Northgate Public Services for provision of Govtech’s Universal Credit Digital Service, each for a further 12 months. As the Covid-19 lockdown leads to a huge increase in the number of people in receipt of Universal Credit, UCDS will play an increasingly important role in ensuring that councils stay on top of a work stream that is beginning to rapidly increase in size.
