We are holding a series of roadshows across Scotland from 1 August until 29 August to raise awareness of Funeral Support Payment. This benefit will replace Funeral Expense Payment in Scotland and will launch later this summer.

These roadshows are for people who work with clients who are on low incomes and could find themselves getting into financial difficulty if they are bereaved and responsible for paying for a funeral. This could include, but is not limited to, funeral directors, NHS bereavement services, registrars, welfare advisors, credit union employees and charities. The sessions offer you the opportunity to hear all about the new benefit and to ask questions that will help you support clients who may be eligible. You can either come along to one of our local events or join our teleconference or webinar.
