These briefings were written to inform the work of the Lone Parents and Welfare Reform sub-group of the Scottish Government's Welfare Reform & Health Impact Delivery Group (HIDG). The findings of the papers are likely to be of interest to those who are involved in planning at both a national and at a local level in community planning and health and social care partnerships. They are particularly pertinent to the following areas of policy: social security, employability, child poverty, early years, children & families and fair work.
