Scottish Women's Budget Group responding to the Resource Spending Review Jun 14: Last month’s resource spending review presented a stark picture for Scotland’s budget over the coming years.

Measures such as the Scottish Child Payment and changes to Carers Allowance will help address women’s poverty.
