Social Fund evidence for the Work and Pensions Commitee

Consultation response providing evidence on Scottish CAB clients' experiences accessing the social fund.

Problems relating to the Social Fund are a major concern for the Scottish CAB service. CAS has long campaigned for reform of the fund to ensure that it provides access to affordable credit for those on low incomes which cannot stretch to sudden, unplanned expenses1. We therefore welcome this opportunity to contribute to the Work and Pensions Committee’s one-off evidence session examining the Social Fund.
