Scottish Government Equality Outcomes: Religion and Belief Evidence Review

This evidence review was prepared to support the production of the Scottish Government's Equality Outcomes, with regard to religion.


10.1 A Public Appointment is an appointment to the board of any of the public bodies across Scotland - either as a member, or as the chair[48]. The board's role is to provide leadership, direction and guidance, it is not involved in the day-to-day running of the public body.

10.2 The Scottish Government's website for public appointments reports that, in the public appointments rounds for 2011-12, over 50% of applicants were Christian, with only 2.3% having another religion. It is anticipated that data to 2013 will be published on the same website later this year[49].
