Thanks to everyone who came along to our meeting in Edinburgh on 8 September 2017. Notes from the meeting are available in the members area.
SNP MSP for Edinburgh Northern and Leith, Ben Macpherson, who attended the workshops, said:
“With the new Social Security Bill at Stage 1 in the Parliament, this is of course an especially significant time for the development of Social Security policy in Scotland. Conferences, like NAWRAs today, are playing an important role in that. Building a new Social Security Agency, built on the principles of dignity and respect, is a real opportunity to deliver the devolved benefits differently, compassionately and more effectively. I’m looking forward to playing my part in that as an MSP and a member of the Social Security Committee, and with everyone at today’s event.”
