Welfare Reform - Your Say

The Welfare Reform Committee is keen to hear from people across Scotland on the issue of welfare reform. We want to hear from people who are willing to give us their views on, or personal experiences of, the new welfare system. We would also like to know about the concerns people may have with the introduction of changes to the benefits system which will be put in place once the UK Welfare Reform Bill is fully implemented.

The information supplied by you will be a great way to help us assess what the main issues of the current system are, and what the Committee should look to focus on when scrutinising the impact of what the UK Welfare Reform Act.

This Act will see changes to the way that the benefits sytem in this country is operated, and these reforms will have an impact on everyone - from children and older people, to single parents and families amongst others. Through your input, you can be responsible for helping to shape the work of the Committee by contributing to its scrutiny of forthcoming legislation and holding the Government to account.

Any organisations that think they may know of particularly interesting cases or experiences should also be in touch to help us reach out to individuals who may not know how to get their personal experiences across. The Committee is here to listen and help people and disadvantaged groups get their message across
