Keith Dryburgh of Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) will cover details of the new Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment (PiP), anticipated changes to the Supported Housing system, as well as the Scottish Government's proposals for the devolved aspects of welfare reform, as part of a workshop at the two-day event.
