Fair Start Scotland - individual placement and support review: Scottish Government response

Scottish Government response to the independent review of Individual Placement and Support (IPS) in Scotland.


Tackling the root causes of health inequalities remains a top priority for the Scottish Government. The impact of persistent deprivation, poverty and other inequalities precipitated by, among other factors, mental ill health, have been thrown into sharp relief by COVID-19. This is why our commitment to build a wellbeing economy is now so vital, with fair and healthy work being an integral part of our commitment.

We are grateful to the Review Steering Group, and to all stakeholders who engaged with Social Finance in undertaking this review. We are delighted to publish the key findings of this review, along with this Scottish Government response to the recommendations.

Richard Lochhead, Minister for Just Transition, Employment & Fair Work

Kevin Stewart, Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care
