Executive Summary

The Scottish Government is determined to show leadership in advancing race equality, tackling racism and addressing the barriers that prevent people from minority ethnic communities from realising their potential. This Action Plan builds on the Race Equality Framework for Scotland and is informed by the work of independent Race Equality Adviser. It outlines over 100 actions that will be delivered over the course of this Parliament in areas of employment, education and lifelong learning, health, housing, poverty, community cohesion and safety, and participation and representation to make real improvements in the lives and experiences of minority ethnic communities in Scotland. The Action Plan also highlights specific Scottish Government led activities for the Gypsy/Traveller community.

This publication includes a Highlight Report setting out progress made on implementing the Race Equality Framework from March 2016 to autumn 2017.
