In February 2021 Inclusion Scotland ran a survey to ask disabled people their views on key aspects of the Adult Disability Payment draft regulations. This report sets out what disabled people told us and our response to the Scottish Government’s consultation.
Adult Disability Payment is a new Scottish benefit which will replace Personal Independence Payment for eligible disabled people aged 16 to 64. It will be delivered by Social Security Scotland from spring 2022.
Over 300 people responded to the survey and we used the findings to write a response to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the regulations which closed on Monday 15 March 2021.
We also ran a webinar for Inclusion Scotland members on Monday 1 March where we had an in-depth discussion about some of the issues in the consultation. These also informed our consultation response.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey and came along to the webinar.
