The Scottish Government's Social Renewal Advisory Board

The aim of the Social Renewal Advisory Board is to do the ‘big thinking’ that can help bring about a Fairer Scotland as we recover from the pandemic and look to the future.

It includes a strong focus on tackling poverty, advancing equality and embedding human rights.

Call for ideas
This is an invitation for you to tell the board what needs to change to bring about a Fairer Scotland in the future, based on your learning from the COVID pandemic.

Your ideas could focus on one of the themes discussed by the board: housing and place, work, income, public services, and attitudes and discrimination. Or on something else you think is important.

We expect that some ideas will be for the Scottish Government to take up. But you might also have other suggestions for local government, business, employers, the UK Government, providers of services, or the third sector (voluntary groups).

Any organisation should feel free to send in ideas. We would particularly like to hear from groups working with people with protected characteristics. The protected characteristics are: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, or those with lived experience of the issues. All experience is valuable.
