Disability Assistance (Miscellaneous Amendment) (Scotland) Regulations 2023: fairer Scotland impact assessment

Fairer Scotland duty impact assessment to consider potential impacts of the Disability Assistance (Miscellaneous Amendment) (Scotland) Regulations 2023 on socio-economic inequality.

Monitoring and evaluation

The Social Security (Scotland) Act 2018 places a duty on the Scottish Ministers to report annually to the Scottish Parliament on the performance of the Scottish social security system during the previous financial year. The report is to describe what the Scottish Ministers have done in that year to meet the expectations on them set out in the charter.

The Communities Analysis Division within the Scottish Government will also run a comprehensive evaluation programme to consider the impact of the changes to disability assistance in Scotland including considering the transition for those moving from Child Disability Payment to Adult Disability Payment which we have further improved by these amendments.
