  • VoiceAbility - Support to access benefits if you are disabled

    Created: 13/02/2023, Updated: 14/02/2023

    VoiceAbility has developed a leaflet detailing the support available to access benefits if you are disabled, including advocacy support.

    If you identify as disabled, you can get free support to access benefits from Social Security Scotland. This support is available from the moment you want to start an application and is entirely independent from Social Security Scotland.

    An advocate can help you to:

    • understand information about your rights, and options;
    • ask questions so you can say what you want, have your voice heard and represent yourself;
    • be fully involved in decisions about your benefits; and
    • complete the process from the point of application, including reviews and any appeals you want to make.
