Social Security Scotland are hosting engagement events to provide people with information on applying for Child Disability Payment.

Following the successful pilot of Child Disability Payment in Dundee, Perth & Kinross and the Western Isles, Social Security Scotland will be launching Child Disability Payment nationally this Autumn.

Child Disability Payment will replace Disability Living Allowance for Children, which is currently delivered by the Department for Work and Pensions.

It has been designed to provide extra money to help with the costs of caring for a child with a disability or ill-health condition.

Social Security Scotland wants to make sure people have all the relevant information about Child Disability Payment before it opens for applications nationally.

Social Security Scotland’s National Engagement Team invite you to attend one of their online Child Disability Payment events that will provide you with information on the end to end journey for clients applying for Child Disability Payment as well as sessions on specific aspects of Child Disability Payment such as Special Rules for Terminal Illness and Supporting Information for Public and Third sector employees.

The following series of events have been scheduled :
