Social Security Scotland: benefits agency comes to Wigtownshire – Newton Stewart
April 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Social Security Scotland are attending our roadshow in Newton Stewart for people to find out more about the new Agency and to have their say on where they should be as they roll out their local service in Dumfries and Galloway.
It is the new service that has been created by the Scottish Government to deliver a number of benefits. Delivery of these benefits will transfer from the UK Government to the Scottish Government in stages over the next four years.
At the end of the transfer process they will be delivering benefits to provide additional support for people on low incomes, disabled people, carers, young people entering the workplace and to help people heat their homes.
