Adult Disability Payment Independent Review

The Chair of the Independent Review of Adult Disability Payment, Edel Harris OBE, is consulting on people’s views about the first year of delivery of Adult Disability Payment. This will be used to help inform recommendations to ensure that Adult Disability Payment meets the needs of disabled people. The consultation is mainly meant for people with lived and living experience of accessing – or trying to access – Adult Disability Payment, although anyone can respond. A separate call for evidence that is mainly meant for organisations to respond to is also available.

For those with lived experience:

“I want to hear directly from disabled people, terminally ill people, and people living with long term mental and physical health conditions as part of the Independent Review, about their experiences of Adult Disability Payment. I also want to hear from people and organisations who support people who currently or are likely to access Adult Disability Payment.

You may not identify as a disabled person. You might have a long-term health condition that affects your day-to-day life, but your experience is just as important to me. Gathering all your views will help me to make my recommendations to the Scottish Government.”
