Social Security Scotland have published three equality documents and the Equality Strategy Impact Assessment Summary.

On Tuesday 22 June, Social Security Scotland published three equality documents and the equality impact assessment summary.

Publication of these three documents supports Social Security Scotland in meeting their obligations under section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (the public sector equality duty) and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations 2012 as amended. The published documents are:

  1. Equality Strategy (this link will take you away from our website) details Social Security Scotland’s overall approach, provides strategic overview and is aligned to their Corporate Plan; and
  2. Equality Outcomes (this link will take you away from our website) which will enable Social Security Scotland to better perform the general equality duty and that suitably demonstrates the ambition they and their stakeholders have to be an exemplar public body.
  3. Mainstreaming Equalities Report (this link will take you away from our website) includes already published Workforce Information, Client Equality and Diversity Analysis and All Client Survey. It will also include some previously unpublished data specifically on recruitment.
  4. Equality Strategy Impact Assessment Summary (this link will take you away from our website) shows how the information about Social Security Scotland’s workforce and the communities they serve guided their approach and the focus of their equality outcomes for 2021-2022.

The Equality Strategy document has been crystal marked by the Plain English Campaign and produced in both an Easy Read and British Sign Language version. The Equality Outcomes document has been crystal marked by the Plain English Campaign. The Mainstreaming Equalities Report has been produced as a visual summary.
