Consultation launched on disability assistance in Scotland

Type: News Item Date Published: 5th March 2019

The Scottish Government is seeking views on its approach to the delivery of Social Security entitlements.

From April 2020 the Scottish Government will take full responsibility for all remaining devolved entitlements, with replacement disability payments to start their introduction from summer 2020.

To support this process, a consultation is underway which looks to hear the views of people with lived experience or a working knowledge of social security, including disability entitlements, and experience of the application process.

You have until 28 May 2019 to submit a response.

Disability Assistance in Scotland will have three strands of support;

  • Disability Assistance for Children and Young People (DACYP)
  • Disability Assistance for Working-Age People (DAWAP)
  • Disability Assistance for Older People (DAOP)
