ILF Scotland Response to the Scottish Government's Social Security Consultation
We believe that in the way the UK ILF had an inter-reliant relationship with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), a similar connection will need to exist between the proposed agency and ILF Scotland. Therefore, as a result of this, and the close relationship that we have with disabled people due to the work that we do, we wanted to submit a response to the Scottish Government's Social Security Consultation, which you can view below.
This response is written from our unique experience of:
- the devolution of funds from the DWP,
- disabled people’s involvement in our establishment,
- running a devolved payments system, and more importantly
- our inimitable relationship with fund recipients.
