In December 2020, Scottish Government published its Fairer Scotland Action Plan: Progress Report 2020. The report describes Scottish Government’s achievements and ongoing work according to its 2016 Fairer Scotland Action Plan.

The report analyses progress in the following areas:

  • Employment, including youth employment
  • Education and childcare
  • Housing
  • Social security and benefit up-take
  • Social policy
  • Equality
  • Health, including mental health
