AdvoCard -Welfare Reform & DWP Issues

Ben MacPherson, MSP for Edinburgh Northern and Leith, has tabled a motion in parliament on behalf of AdvoCard, LCil, Inclusion Scotland and People First. In this motion we ask that the right to advocacy be included in new Social Security Legislation which would give people the right to have an advocacy worker present at assessments and to help with the claim process. Please show your support for this by asking your MSP to back the motion (MOTION NUMBER S5m - 01817). If anyone would like any further information please call Arlene on 0131 554 5307 /
