Best Start, Bright Futures Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan 2022-2026: Annex 7: Equality Impact Assessment

Title of Policy: Best Start, Bright Futures Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan 2022-26

Summary of aims and desired outcomes of policy: This Delivery Plan will set out a package of policies to deliver on the government's, and Scotland's, national mission to tackle child poverty.

Specifically, it aims to:

- Reduce child poverty in Scotland and meet the 4 statutory child poverty targets - relative, absolute and persistent poverty and combined low income and material deprivation - set out in the Child Poverty (Scotland) Act 2017

- Set out the combination of policy interventions to be implemented during 2022-2026 to deliver the interim targets and contribute to the final targets

- Whilst individual policies have specific aims and outcomes, in combination the desired outcome will be to impact on the three drivers of tackling child poverty - increasing income from work and earnings, reducing household costs and maximising incomes from social security and benefits in kind
