Social Security Scotland
Are you aware of the changes to social security in Scotland and how they will affect many of the clients you are working with? If you’d like to know more then you need to speak to Social Security Scotland.
Social Security Scotland was set up by the Scottish Government to deliver a number of benefits. These benefits are being introduced in stages and once fully operational, we will deliver benefits for people on low incomes, disabled people, carers, young people entering the workplace and helping people to heat their homes.
We are already delivering a number of benefits including Carer’s Allowance Supplement, Best Start Grant, Best Start Foods, Funeral Support Payment and the Young Carer Grant.
The DWP and local authorities are continuing to deliver some benefits in Scotland such as Universal Credit.
Social Security Scotland is working with people with direct experience of the benefits system to put dignity, fairness and respect at the heart of everything it does. To find out more about what we are doing to improve the delivery of social security in Scotland and the benefits we are delivering please come along to our stand or visit socialsecurity.gov.scot.
