Welfare reform impact survey

Aberdeenshire Council are looking for people and organisations who have been affected by changes to the benefits system to complete a short questionnaire which will help the council to assess the impact of welfare reform in Aberdeenshire since April 2013.

The council is committed to monitoring the impact of the UK Government’s welfare reform on residents and services in Aberdeenshire.

A key part of that work involves engaging with residents, partners and other organisations that have been affected by changes to the benefits system.

Aberdeenshire Council’s benefits manager Susan Donald said: “We are particularly interested to establish the impact this has had on claimants’ finances, access to services, household circumstances and general well being.”

The questionnaires are available at: http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/benefits/welfarereform/AberdeenshireCouncil-WelfareReformSurvey.asp
