ENGENDER RESPONSE TO SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT CONSULTATION ON SOCIAL SECURITY IN SCOTLAND ENGENDER RESPONSE, OCTOBER 2016

Engender welcomes this opportunity to respond to the Scottish Government’s consultation on social security in Scotland. Together with partners at Scottish Women’s Aid, Close the Gap, the Scottish Refugee Council and Carers Scotland, we have consistently worked to highlight the links between women’s inequality and the current UK social security system. Earlier this year we released a policy report on Scotland’s new powers over social security, recommending a suite of ways in which new powers can be engaged to increase women’s equality in Scotland.
