Scotland's Housing Network provides a support service to ALL social landlords across Scotland. As part of the Welfare Reform Service, SHN runs a number of Forums located throughout Scotland. The Forums are held 3 times a year and are in Inverness, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The Welfare Reform Forum service is free to all SHN member organisations. There is a nominal fee applicable for any non member organisation/social landlord wishing to attend.
The service aims to provide practitioners with a platform to meet and discuss issues around Welfare Reform and also ensure that all relevant publications and good practice is shared.
Scotland's Housing Network held three virtual welfare reform forums in June 2020. Facilitated by Tony Donohoe (SHN Associate), the presentations by Diane Lambie (Scottish Government) and Jeremy Hewer (SFHA) provided participants with good overviews of the current situation and the impact that COVID 19 had on welfare reforms. The event report and presentations are available below. If you have any queries about this series of events, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
