Rights Advice Scotland


RAS-123x154 Rights Advice Scotland is an organisation representing Welfare Rights Officers in Scottish Local Authorities. We aim to be a key player in the field of Social Welfare Law and to promote the excellent work and breadth of knowledge of our members and campaign for the uptake of benefits and for benefit reform. Rights Advice Scotland will work in partnership with other organisations to ensure the delivery of high quality advice across the field, providing information and training on benefit related matters to its own members and to advisers in other organisations throughout Scotland.

In recent years we have worked closely with the Scottish Local Government Forum Against Poverty which is an elected member forum. Together we have produced several reports into the impact of cuts to welfare benefits.
