Scotland's social security system is changing, and we want to make sure that women's equality is at its heart.
Women’s and equalities organisations are very concerned about plans to pay Universal Credit to households, not individuals, which undermine women’s ﬁnancial independence, safety and equality. You can find out more about this, and other issues related to social security and women's equality, in our report released earlier this year.
The Scottish Government has been consulting on the changes to the social security system, and we're pleased that so many women and equalities organisations responded echoing our calls. Our work on this vital issue will continue long after the consultation results are out, so if you'd like to be kept informed about our work on this, please sign up below.
