Stonewall training: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

How many Government Ministers have undertaken Stonewall training?

How many civil servants have undertaken Stonewall training?

How many Special Advisors or Ministerial staff have undertaken Stonewall training?


I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested below.

When interpreting "ministerial staff" as staff employed to work directly for ministers, Scottish Government is not responsible for providing training for Ministers, SpAds or Ministerial Staff and therefore we do not hold any records for this.

Our records show that since 2019, no more than 437 civil servants have attended Stonewall training.
