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.


For more information on each of these localised Forums please look at the individual pages North, East and West, the links for which you will find at the left of this page.  You will find dates for each of the Forums here and also presentations and summary reports from each of the events held.


If you have any queries at all or would like more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Fiona at:-
