Equality Impact Assessment - Child Poverty Strategy for Scotland, 06/05/14 [S]

The Scottish Government has published an equality impact assessment to acompany the Child Poverty Strategy for Scotland - Our Approach - 2014-2017.

The Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) has shown that the aims and obligations set out in the revised Child Poverty Strategy for Scotland could have an impact across the whole of the Scottish population to varying extents.

It is expected that the most significant impacts, and the most positive impacts, will be on children, families with children and those with caring responsibilities for children, including kinship carers. The strategy is part of the Government’s preventative approach to tackling poverty and inequality – focussing on early intervention.

For full details see the Scottish Government website.
