ANNUAL CONFERENCE: Welfare Rights 2016 - bookings now open

14 March 2016

On Friday 10 June we are holding our annual conference for welfare rights and other advisers in Scotland. This year it will be at a new venue this year, University of Strathclyde, Technology and Innovation Centre.

The pace of change in social security is unrelenting as universal credit rolls out, new powers are devolved to Scotland, wider UK welfare ‘reforms’ continue to impact on families and the Scottish Welfare Fund gains a statutory underpinning.

Book now to hear the latest developments as well as explore how rights to social security can support children’s rights to achieve the goal of ending child poverty.

As the newly elected Scottish Parliament considers how to use its new social security powers, the conference will also hear a range of perspectives on how ‘dignity’ can be built into the social security system at Scottish and UK level.

We are running eight expert workshops:
  • Genuine Prospect of Work
  • Universal credit and housing
  • Scottish Welfare Fund – better than before?
  • Universal credit - what’s new
  • Personal independence payment – three years on
  • Universal credit full service
  • Welfare reform – softening the blow
  • Vulnerable witnesses – handling and assessing their evidence
