We collect evidence from families living in poverty and campaign for solutions to bring about a society where children have a fair chance in life free from hardship. We provide training, advice and information on social security to frontline workers to make sure families get the financial support they need.

Training and events

We have a full programme of online training courses designed to help frontline advisers and workers in Scotland stay informed and up-to-date.

Support for advisers

Free, expert advice on benefit and tax credit issues if you’re a frontline adviser or support worker.

Benefits in Scotland

Information about benefits in Scotland for advisers and support workers.
