Scotland's Welfare Rights Conference

CPAG in Scotland

Our annual face to face conference returns to the University of Strathclyde's Technology and Innovation Centre in Glasgow on Friday 7 June 2024

About the conference:

2024 will be a critical election year. What difference could it make to the future of social security, the lives of low-income families and the work of frontline advisers? Welfare Rights 2024 provides a unique opportunity to get up to speed with the latest developments in UK and Scottish social security as well as join discussion with political leaders, social security experts and policy thinkers to discuss what’s needed next from our social security system.

The conference offers a range of topical workshops to discuss the latest on transitional protection in the move to universal credit, intensifying work-related conditions, issues for tenants getting support with rent, the latest on the roll out of Scottish benefits, preparing advisers for new Scottish benefit appeals and practical approaches to assisting prisoners and their families.
