Scottish Government are looking to speak to anyone that has worked directly with applicants of the Funeral Expense Payment (FEP) benefit, or worked with those who have needed financial support to pay for a funeral.
The purpose of this research is to find out what works, and what doesn’t work for people in the current service. This will help with the redesign of FEP when it becomes Funeral Expense Assistance next summer.
Janey Crichton, Senior User Researcher on this activity, will also be in attendance at the Community Care and Health Forum on Tuesday 6th November and the Tackling Poverty and Inequalities Forum on Thursday 13th December to discuss the research.
