The Scottish Government has produced a stakeholder toolkit with a series of factsheets which you may find useful to share with your patients or service users.

The toolkit is designed for all public, third sector and charitable organisations who are involved in the delivery of, or providing advice on, the new social security benefits which are being devolved to the Scottish Government under the Scotland Act 2016.

These include a range of powers over disability and carers, as well as powers to make administrative changes to Universal Credit and vary the housing costs element.

You can find the toolkit on the Scottish Government website
