Early Warning System in Scotland
The Early Warning System (EWS) was set up by CPAG in Scotland to collect and analyse case evidence about how changes in the benefit system are affecting the wellbeing of children, their families and the communities and services that support them.
We analyse queries made to our advice service, submissions from frontline workers, including welfare rights advisors, housing officers and support workers.
In partnership with Dr. Morag Treanor of the University of Edinburgh, we have also been working with a group of low income families over a number of years to gain an in-depth understanding of how poverty and benefit chnages are affecting child and family wellbeing.
The cases and research are enabling us to develop and share our knowledge on the impact of changes to the benefit system and to identify how policies and services in Scotland can continue to contribute to delivery of better outcomes for children.
