Equality Outcomes 2021-2025

Closes 22 Dec 2020

Consultation contents

We are consulting on seven equality themes: 

  1. Accessibility
  2. Housing
  3. Inclusive education
  4. Eradicate racism
  5. Safer communities and gender based violence
  6. Workplaces
  7. Mental health awareness, support and management

These draft themes are based on research and evidence from different sources and on conversations with services and organisations that work to help and support people.

Below is a list of all the sections of this consultation. Each section includes some background about the equality theme, a draft outcome detailing what we want to achieve and action we could take to deliver the outcome.

You can either share your views on all of the equality themes or just respond about the ones you are interested in by clicking on the sections below. At the end of each section, you will return to this page where you can select the next part you want to respond to. 

Throughout this consultation we refer to protected characteristic groups. The Equality Act 2010 protects the following characteristics:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment 
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation.

It is against the law to discriminate against someone because of a protected characteristic.

In addition to the 9 protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act, we have a duty to also take account of people's socio-economic status under the Fairer Scotland Duty.
