Welfare Rights Conference 2018

Welfare Rights Conference 2018 Fri 22nd June Technology and Innovation centre Strathclyde University Glasgow

This is the annual welfare rights conference for advisors, support workers and all those working to maximise family incomes.

The ongoing roll-out of universal credit across the UK and the passing of Scotland’s first Social Security Act paving the way for the transfer of key benefits, including disability and carer’s assistance, mean that 2018 is yet again a year of massive change in the welfare rights landscape.

This conference will give delegates the opportunity to hear and discuss the latest developments, but also join political leaders, policy makers and human rights experts to take stock and debate how best the right to social security can be protected and enhanced in the years ahead.

Delegates can attend two workshops from a choice of 8. Plus the speakers just confirmed are; Morning plenary session: Setting the Scene • Angela Constance MSP, Cab Sec for Communities, Social Security and Equalities, Scottish Government • David Wallace, Chief Executive, Social Security Agency, Scottish Government • John Dickie, Director, CPAG in Scotland Afternoon plenary session: ‘Social security: a human right being realised or under threat?’ • Douglas Hamilton, Chair of Poverty and Inequality Commission • Eleanor Deeming, legal officer, Scottish Human Rights Commission • Carla Clarke, Solicitor, CPAG

Cost per delegate including lunch: £180 (or £171 if a CPAG member)
