Social Security - Draft Mainstreaming Equality Outcomes

Closes 6 Feb 2020

Opened 7 Nov 2019

Overview

Social Security Scotland is working to develop its first Equality Strategy. This strategy will ensure equality is at the centre of all that we do. 

The strategy will set out our commitment to mainstreaming equality, and this will be underpinned by a set of strong mainstreaming equality outcomes. These outcomes are the focus of this important consultation we are running. We are seeking views from clients and stakeholders to make sure these are:

  • The right outcomes for a new growing organisation.
  • Focused rightly towards making practical improvements and on addressing inequality. 
  • Clear on what we aim to achieve and how we can measure and demonstrate this. 

Your input on these outcomes will make sure we deliver an Equality Strategy that achieves the practical improvements for those who experience discrimination and disadvantage, and are reflective of what our stakeholders' needs are.
