The Social Security Directorate are creating opportunities for people across the country to get involved in the design and operation of Scotland’s new social security system.
During July and August, a series of roadshows will be held across Scotland to raise awareness of the new Carer’s Allowance Supplement. The roadshows are specifically for those who work with carers and places will be limited.
It is hoped that as many front line staff as possible have the opportunity to attend.
Please RSVP to Colin Bell at: Colin.Bell2@gov.scot confirming your name, contact details, organisation and which date you wish to attend by close of play Friday 13th July. Please include any special requirements.
