The IS and Scottish Government are hosting a series of webinars for funders and providers of money and welfare rights services.
The three webinars, organised by the IS Evaluation Team, will examine issues around the future of money and welfare advice services, and encourage wider debate about these services and the impact of COVID-19.
The first webinar on 10 July will outline the findings from an in depth engagement process on potential funding models for distributing the debt levy funding that has been devolved to the Scottish Government. It is also intended to outline future engagement opportunities. The session will include an update on the 'test of change' that is taking place in relation to one model - disseminating the funding by direct grants to local authorities.

The second webinar, on 23 July, will offer an update on how local authority funded money and welfare advice services have responded to COVID-19. As well as providing an overview of the national picture, examples from individual local authorities will be shared.
The third webinar, at a date to be confirmed in August, will look at different options for delivering money and welfare advice services and the partnerships which could support them.
