Ukraine - Super Sponsor Scheme review: equality impact assessment

The review has identified 16 interventions aimed at improving the current Super Sponsor Scheme and our response in supporting displaced people from Ukraine to settle well in Scotland.

Stage 1: Framing

Results of framing exercise

The 16 interventions as part of the Super Sponsor Scheme Review have far reaching and cross-cutting implications for displaced people arriving from Ukraine as well as the communities they will join, they will have effects across many of the nine protected characteristics as set out in the Equality Act 2010. Therefore, we have decided to undertake a strategic impact assessment of the review as a whole, and further assessments of each of the 16 interventions.

This EQIA will focus on the outcome of the review on a strategic level and operational and policy teams will assess whether any stand-alone assessment is required for specific interventions as work to take these forward progresses.

Extent/Level of EQIA required

This EQIA should be used as a tool and evidence base for teams undertaking specific interventions. Specifically, this EQIA assesses any impacts of applying a proposed new or revised policy or practice against the three needs of the public sector equality duty.

The needs are to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation;
  • Advance equality of opportunity; and
  • Foster good relations
