About Welfare Trackers

The Welfare Tracking project is a collaboration between The Poverty Alliance, GCVS and Scottish Drugs Forum and funded by BLF Support and Connect. It will run until August 2015. Its aim is to monitor and assess the impact of benefit changes on individuals and support and advice agencies in Glasgow

The Poverty Alliance is a membership organisation with a range of varied experience in addressing issues related to poverty and social exclusion.  Our membership is made up of a wide range of organisations including grassroots community groups, individuals facing poverty, voluntary organisations, statutory organisations, policy makers and academics.  We now act as the national anti-poverty network in Scotland, working with voluntary organisations, policy makers and politicians at Scottish, UK and European levels.

Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) is a membership-based drugs policy and information organisation and is a national resource of expertise on drugs.

Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector (GCVS) is the main development agency and advocate for voluntary and community organisations in Glasgow and a key partner in Glasgow’s Third Sector Interface.
