New fund to improve benefit take-up

Support for third sector organisations delivering Scotland’s new benefits system.

A new £500,000 fund is being opened for organisations which help people accessing the benefits to be delivered by the Scottish Government.

The Scottish Benefit Take-up Fund will support charities and third sector organisations in their work to address barriers which prevent people from applying for benefits.

This includes tackling perceived stigma and supporting people through the application process.
