Response to SSAC call for evidence on social security and separated parents

By: Shelter Scotland  Published: April 2019

This is Shelter Scotland's response to the Social Security Advisory Committee’s call for evidence on social security and separated parents.


In our experience, social security can adversely impact non-resident parents, resident parents and their children in a number of ways, and this is intrinsically linked to how social security interacts with housing and homelessness. This response sets out how social security can affect separated parents with regards to housing.
