Summer offer for children and young people - 'Get Into Summer' programme: equality impact assessment

This EQIA concerns the £20 million summer offer for children and young people, one of the Scottish Government's 100 Days commitments.

Stage 4: Decision making and monitoring

Identifying and establishing any required mitigating action
Have positive or negative impacts been identified for any of the equality groups? No direct or indirect unlawful discrimination has been identified within this impact assessment. Impacts of the programme's delivery will be continuously monitored. Appropriate action will be taken to eliminate any discriminatory impacts found.

Positive impacts identified across many of the protected characteristics, for example, age, disability and race. Activities are offered to all participants and are designed to help ensure that we can advance equality and foster good relations through participation.
Is the policy directly or indirectly discriminatory under the Equality Act 2010[33]? No
If the policy is indirectly discriminatory, how is it justified under the relevant legislation? n/a
If not justified, what mitigating action will be undertaken? n/a

Describing how Equality Impact analysis has shaped the policy making process

The Equality Impact analysis has shown that The Summer Offer for Children and Young People, 'Get into Summer', Programme of activity will have a positive impact on most equality groups where children and young people are involved.

No negative impact is anticipated.

This impact assessment should be read in conjunction with impact assessment developed in parallel; which relates to The Summer Offer for Children and Young People, 'Get into Summer', Programme, including:

  • Child Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessment (CRWIA) and,
  • Island Communities Impact Assessment (ICIA)

Monitoring and Review

The Scottish Government intends to undertake a national evaluation of the Programme once concluded. To inform the evaluation, local authority and national organisation delivery partners will provide light-touch reporting, providing information on delivery and reach of the funding and help inform future policy and practice, as well as equalities monitoring.

Integrating opportunities to learn and adapt throughout project delivery is encouraged and will help inform reporting and next steps.
