Scottish government consultation on fraud in the social security system

Last updated: 14/04/2021

OPFS welcomes the commitment that the Scottish Social Security Agency will treat those who use the service with dignity, respect and fairness. The process of developing the suite of early years benefits – Best Start Grants in particular – has been the first trial of that assurance. OPFS has supported single parents to participate in the co-production of the development of these benefits. The same co-design principles should be committed to in the introduction of regulations dealing with allegations or suspicion of fraud.
