Charity worker struck off for benefit fraud

Kerry Mulholland was employed by Sense Scotland as a relief support assistant when she was caught making false housing benefit claims.

She was convicted at Hamilton Sheriff Court of failing to notify South Lanarkshire Council that she was living with a partner, which affected her claim.

The false claims were made between January 11 2012 and January 11 2015.

Ms Mulholland was struck off the care register at a recent hearing of the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).

The council described her behaviour as “dishonest and untrustworthy” and added: “Your behaviour calls into question your suitability to work in this sector.”
