    Updated benefit take-up strategy aims to increase access to benefits 

    The refreshed Scottish Government Benefit Take-Up Strategy, published in October, builds on previous efforts to remove social barriers to people accessing Scottish benefits.

    Communicating and engaging effectively with clients and stakeholders is crucial in making sure people get the right information in at the right time to help them apply for the support they are entitled to. This strategy recognises the important role that partners play as a key stakeholder in raising awareness of the benefits Social Security Scotland administers.  A number of stakeholder resources are available to support this, you can find these at the Social Security Scotland website.
