Child Disability Payment Amendment Regulations: draft equality impact assessment

The Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) considers potential effects of the Disability Assistance For Children And Young People (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2021 and how it impacts on people with one or more protected characteristics.

The Scope of the EQIA

  • The scope of this EQIA is to look at the impact the amendment regulations will have on:
  • the introduction of the Child Disability Payment (CDP) to replace Disability Living Allowance for Children (DLAC); and
  • the transfer of responsibility for delivering disability benefits for children and young people under the age of 18 who receive DLAC in Scotland from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) on behalf of Scottish Ministers to Social Security Scotland, and changing the disability benefits for these children and young people from DLAC to CDP.
