Iriss and CCPS - the Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland - collaborated on an ESRC funded research project to investigate the impact of welfare reform on third sector social and housing care providers in Scotland.
The results of this project were shared at a workshop on the 23rd of April 2014 in Edinburgh. Lead Researcher Gregory White describes the project and its findings. Shaheena Din explains how the Scottish Welfare Reform Advisory Service (SCOTWRAS) works, highlighting examples of the kind of enquiries they handle. Finally Kirsty McKechnie from Child Poverty Action Group Scotland describes the Early Warning System for gathering information about the impact of welfare on children and their families.
