This Island Communities Impact Assessment (ICIA) considers the impact of Cash-First: Towards ending the need for food banks in Scotland hereafter known as “the Plan”.
This has been carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Islands (Scotland) Act 2018 which creates a duty on Scottish Ministers and other relevant public bodies to have regard to island communities in exercising their functions and in the development of new policy, strategy or services which may, in their opinion, be likely to have an effect on an island community which is significantly different from its effect on other communities in Scotland.
The views in this summary have been informed by official statistics, academic publications, evidence from frontline services, and consultation responses.
