National discussion on a fairer and healthier Scotland

September 4, 2015

This summer the Scottish Government has begun several national conversations about what Scotland should look like in 2030.

Creating a Fairer Scotland and Creating a Healthier Scotland are both part of these national conversations and are opportunities for people living in Scotland to tell the Scottish Government about the issues and solutions in creating a fairer and healthier Scotland.

Creating a Healthier Scotland logoIn addition, As part of Creating a Fairer Scotland, the Scottish Government has created this survey seeking views on how best the Scottish Government can support people into fair and sustainable employment. An easy read leaflet is also available which gives background information on this.

Creating a Fairer Scotland is about capturing views, ideas and concerns around social justice, poverty and inequality and how can Scotland can become a fairer and more equal place to live. You can find out more at fairer.scot.

Creating a Healthier Scotland is about how we can improve the health and wellbeing of people in Scotland and the role and that our health and social care services should play in this. You can find out more at healthier.scot.

As part of these conversations the Scottish Government is organising several discussion and planning events which will be a chance for people to contribute their ideas and experiences. There's more information about some of these here. There will also be opportunities to add your thoughts via social media @scotgovfairer and @scotgovhealth.

There will be overlap across these two areas, but the Scottish Government aims to draw the outcomes of both discussions to form an action plan which will be published in the new year.

Communities Channel Scotland will continue to highlight these campaigns going forward, along with any other opportunities for communities to contribute their views.
