The Scottish Government is pleased to announce the launch of a public consultation on the eligibility criteria for the mobility component of Adult Disability Payment.
This consultation forms part of stage 1 of the review of Adult Disability Payment, ahead of an independent review which will begin later in 2023.
Findings from this consultation will be independently analysed and published. The analysis will be passed to the independent review to consider later this year. The Scottish Government intends to set out further information on the scope and remit of the independent review itself will be shared in the coming months.
They would like to request that you share this consultation with others so that interested people and stakeholders are aware and can contribute. They are keen to ensure that as many people as possible can contribute, whether by responding directly to the consultation or attending a consultation event.
How to be involved
There will be online and face-to-face consultation events. Numbers for these events are limited: sign-ups are available via Ticket Tailor.
The consultation is accessible at Citizen Space, the Scottish Government’s hub for consultations. It will run for 12 weeks and will close on 25 April 2023.
