Re-building a Fairer Scotland after Covid-19

Re-building a Fairer Scotland after Covid-19:

Expertise and experience wanted to help tackle poverty and inequality - Ideas are being gathered to drive a fairer recovery in the wake of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Organisations and community groups are being asked to share ideas and evidence based on their experiences of responding to the pandemic, and their engagement with people with lived experience of poverty and inequality.

Responses will help inform the work of the Scottish Government’s Advisory Board on Social Renewal, which is tasked with building on the positive policy and practice shifts seen during COVID-19 to tackle disadvantage and poverty, and advance equality and social justice.

Analysis of responses will feed into the board’s discussions, and a report on the outcomes will be published later this year.

Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on the health, wealth and emotional wellbeing of our communities is vital to inform the response to and recovery from the pandemic. We also know particular groups have been disproportionately impacted by the crisis.

That is why the Social Renewal Advisory Board has a focus on reducing poverty and disadvantage and advancing equality across a range of issues.

Feedback is sought from as many organisations and community groups as possible, who are working on social renewal which will have adapted, changed and repurposed in light of COVID-19. There is significant learning on this to be shared and expertise to be captured to help drive forward a fairer, more equal society and ensure that the voices of those with lived experience are heard.

The call for ideas and evidence will run until 16 October.
