CPAG Response to Social Security (Scotland) Bill Call for Evidence
A well-functioning social security system is a key pillar for the prevention and eradication of poverty.
The Bill provides a critical opportunity to get the new Scottish social security system right, and invest in the support needed to:
- enable everyone to participate fully in society,
- ensure the newly-devolved benefits are structured simply to minimise delays and errors,
- support the realisation of a rights-based approach.
