Over the next 4-5 weeks, the Scottish Government wants to talk to older people about their experiences of Attendance Allowance, one of the benefits being devolved to Scotland.
There are several ways you can let them know your views:
They are planning to set up consultation events in Dundee, Inverness and Bellshill, but are happy for older peoples’ groups to get in touch if they would like to be involved in focus groups or visits to their own group meetings - contact David.Martin2@gov.scot
You can complete their Attendance Allowance questionnaire online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6PRNGTS
Age Scotland can supply paper copies of the questionnaire – contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request copies.
If you would like to talk to the researcher on a one-to-one basis about your experiences of Attendance Allowance, please get in touch with Anna.Dickinson@gov.scot: telephone 07468 766621
Please share this information with anyone you think may be interested so that as many people as possible can make their views known.
