The Scottish Government has announced a consultation on the new social security scheme that will soon operate in Scotland. The scheme will see control and responsibility for a number of support streams transfer to the Scottish Government.
For CSF Leak sufferers North of the Border, financial support for those with disabilities can play a vital part in making life easier and removes many of the financial worries and strains relating to accommodation, bills, food and vital commodities.
The new arrangements in Scotland will provide an historic opportunity for a new system to be created; one that better responds to those suffering with rare and/or invisible illnesses. We would encourage anyone with an interest in disability support and social security in Scotland to respond to the consultation by 28 October 2016.
