Scottish Government have published an equality impact assessment with actions for achieving the Dementia and COVID-19 National Action Plan.

Scottish Government’s equality impact assessment (EQIA) considers evidence around equalities categories and outlines a number of actions required to ensure equitable access to the policies in the national action plan to continue to support recovery for people with dementia and their carers.

The EQIA describes a number of actions that are considered necessary in helping to achieve the Scottish Government’s Dementia and COVID-19 National Action Plan. The scope of the EQIA is to provide an equality assurance for the proposed actions.
