Challenge the impact of Welfare Reform

Changes to the Welfare system have had a major impact on the most vulnerable of our citizens.

  • We are making people aware of their right to appeal against decisions made by the Department for Work and Pensions by distributing publicity in the community and training third sector organisations on Welfare Reform.
  • We have developed an employee/employer fact sheet on in-work benefits and advice contacts, which was provided to Chambers of Commerce.
  • We have developed a referral pathway to Social Work Services (SWS) Welfare Rights for Scottish Welfare Fund crisis grant applicants who have had their benefit sanctioned.
