Background

Background 

The Scottish Government is becoming responsible for some of the benefits currently delivered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

DWP → Social Security Scotland

To prepare for this change, the Scottish Government set up the Social Security Experience Panels to design Scotland’s new social security system.

Research with Seldom Heard Groups:

As part of the Experience Panels, additional research is being done with seldom heard groups. These are people who may have different experiences that might not be covered in the main Panels.
