Benefit System

 Benefit System

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? Unfit for purpose Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? People driven to extreme poverty.


After 50 years of working & contributing into the welfare system I now find myself unemployed & due to policy changes 1 year short of pension Age. The amount given to live on is disgraceful.

We should be in charge of our own Well Being system. Citizen's allowance good!

Universal Credit MUST be scrapped in Scotland,after having to move onto it I ended up in rent arrears/council tax arrears. My Carers Allowance is deducted, my Carers Element stopped as I went through the LCWRA assessment and was awarded,I may not be fit to work, but still care for my son! LCWRA means tested! CA,means tested ! the system is wrong,it's unfair and driving people into poverty and homelessness
