Have your say about the new social security powers which are coming to Scotland
This is an event organised by Inclusion Scotland, Oban Addiction Support and Information Service and Argyll and Bute Citizens Advice Bureau.
Who is it for? Disabled people and anyone who has ever claimed disability benefits.
When? Tuesday 23 August
Time? 10.30am – 3.30pm
Where? Corran Halls, No 54 The Esplanade, Oban PA34 5AB
Over half of the £22 billion of the cuts to benefits between 2010 – 2015 fell on disabled people and their families. Disabled people are made to go through lots of assessments for their benefits. This can be stressful and upsetting.
The new Scottish disability benefit system should be designed with disabled people. This is called co-production.
Someone from the Scottish Government will also be there to listen to your views and answer questions.
We will discuss:
- How the new system can be used to support people.
- What has made it difficult for you and what has helped you to get benefits in the past
- What principles should guide the benefits system.
