CPAG Early Warning System

Monitors the impact of the benefit system on children and their families

Services provided:

Funded by the Children and Young People’s Early Intervention Fund, the Early Warning System is allowing CPAG and its partners to gain a better understanding of how changes to the benefit system such as universal credit, the two child limit and the introduction of Scottish child payment are affecting the health and wellbeing of children and families living in Scotland.

Information and anonymous case studies are being collected from:

  • Frontline workers including: welfare rights officers, housing advisers and support workers
  • CPAG in Scotland’s second tier advice line, training and events

The information and case studies gathered are quickly analysed and disseminated to inform decision makers, service planners and third sector partners about the impacts of the benefit changes. This will ensure that the Scottish Government, MSPs, local authorities and other public bodies are well informed to respond and take action to ensure the benefit system is supporting families.
