An On-line Training Workshop - Half Day (afternoon)
22 February 2023
10 May 2023
At the request of local authorities, IRRV is running this workshop to give attendees an introduction to the Scottish Welfare Fund and the detail that local authority, housing association and other key staff require to know.
Aim: The workshop is ideally suited to staff who are required to have a better understanding of the Scottish Welfare Fund, including decision makers and managers of teams assessing this support. It is also suited to the wider benefits and welfare sector involved in assisting or advising those who have, or need, to claim support from the Scottish Welfare Fund.
The programme includes:
- What is the Scottish Welfare Fund?
- Who is eligible
- The Decision making process
- Understanding Priority
- What help can we give
- What can’t we help with
- Links with other support
- Recording decisions
- Review, questions and closure
