The Scottish Working Group on Funeral Poverty welcomed the statement from the First Minister in The Progreamme for Government 2015/2016:

“We believe no-one should be prevented a dignified funeral or forced into debt because of the costs of organising a funeral for their loved one. We will review advice on planning a funeral, and review how to make best use of funeral payments to support those on low income who need extra help in arranging a funeral.”
