NHS Health Scotland has recently published new resources to help NHS Boards, Local Authorities, Money and Welfare advice services and other Community Planning Partners develop and improve financial inclusion referral pathways between health and money and welfare advice services.
The new guidance includes information on:
- what financial inclusion referral pathways are,
- how they can help to address child poverty,
- key features of, and steps involved in, developing or improving pathways
The guidance includes three new films describing examples of pathways between money and welfare advice services within:
- Maternity and Health Visiting Services
- GP Services
- Acute Care Services
The guidance and films can be accessed on the Health Scotland website.
