Fantastic news ... Daphne’s been appointed to the Social Security Advisory Committee.

I don’t know about you, but I think she’s going to be a really valuable addition.

Big congratulations Daphne ....

Excellent news. Just need politicians who recognise the huge value of the SSAC now.

Thanks all 😊

Excited to use all the learnings from here, and from NAWRA, to hopefully bring some influence and help DWP/govt understand the impact of policies on claimants

Excellent news, Daphne!

Will you still be able to push for details for us on policy areas which you may now have privileged information about due to your position on the committee?

Many congratulations Daphne. I’m looking forward to watching you ask awkward questions from a WRO’s perspective.

Will you be celebrating by getting the first round in at Durham? ;)

I met Les Allamby a couple of times, he’s got a fine baritone, I doubt he’d take much persuading… ;)

Great blog piece from Daphne:

My first impressions of SSAC by ‘benefits nerd’ Daphne Hall

Great blog!
I’m going to hazard a guess (I know Daphne won’t be able to confirm!) that the regs referred to are about migration of pensioners to UC/PC.

If so, I hope we might get a sneak preview….
