To ask the Scottish Government what childcare is being provided at social security experience panel meetings.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 30 August 2017
Childcare is not being provided directly at face-to-face Experience Panels meetings. We are determined, however, that there should be as few barriers as possible to participation, and are therefore reimbursing panel members for travel and childcare costs incurred as part of their contribution to designing and building a new Social Security system for Scotland.
