ISBN: 9781786524935

This Fairer Scotland Action Plan is a first government response to the Fairer Scotland conversation and a range of wider sources. It outlines 50 actions to help tackle poverty, reduce inequality and build a fairer and more inclusive Scotland.

Executive Summary

The Fairer Scotland Action Plan is built on five high-level ambitions that we will focus on in the period to 2030:

  • A FAIRER SCOTLAND FOR ALL
  • ENDING CHILD POVERTY
  • A STRONG START FOR ALL YOUNG PEOPLE
  • FAIRER WORKING LIVES
  • A THRIVING THIRD AGE

At the heart of the Plan are 50 fairness actions for this parliamentary term that will help us meet these ambitions, ranging across the responsibilities of government.

The Action Plan features commitments from a range of organisations from across the UK who want to help us build a Fairer Scotland and is the start of a long term commitment to help shape a fairer Scotland.
