Stage 4 - Decision

14. What changes, if any, will be made to the proposal as a result of the assessment? Why are these changes being made and what are the expected outcomes?

Due to our consistent engagement with survivors and relevant organisations throughout this process we do not propose any changes to the scheme at this time. Following the launch of the scheme, we will continue to review the processes, incorporating the feedback provided by the Survivor Forum, and where necessary, we will make improvements. Feedback from the Forum will be limited to the exercise of functions conferred on the Scottish Ministers and Redress Scotland, and does not extend to feedback on individual determinations made by the panel. Nor does it extend to wider feedback on making changes to the Act.

15. If no changes are proposed, please explain why.

We are unable to identify and assess any additions to the policy in term of its impacts on inequalities of outcome. This will be a live document. It will continue to be updated as we monitor and assess the impacts of the policy as it develops and the scheme goes live.
