COVID-19 and Social Security


About the inquiry

We have launched an inquiry to help us understand how Scottish social security, and its part within the broader context of all UK social security, should contribute to the social and economic recovery from Covid-19 through support to those in or out of, or seeking, work with a focus on deliverable change from 2021 onwards.

Submit your views here.

The consultation closes on 14 October and we are seeking views from both organisations and individuals. We expect to start taking evidence in November and will report at the start of 2021.
