Policy

The combined experience, expertise and research that DAS can draw on is reflected in its policy work.

The Government is proposing changes to Personal Independence Payments (PIP), which is gradually replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA).

DAS calls on the the new Government and others to support necessary action and the opportunity provided by enhanced devolution to reshape and improve the way employment services work in Scotland.

We believe there is an opportunity presented by the devolution of parts of the social security system to design and deliver a system that empowers disabled people and recognises everyone’s contribution and value to society.

DAS is calling on the Scottish Government to fund a national campaign to raise awareness of disability and reduce stigma

DAS believes that inclusive communication is key to active and equal citizenship and is at the heart of any support or service to all individuals.
