We wish to highlight to you the publication of the independent report of the Social Renewal Advisory Board, available here, which comprises 20 ‘Calls to Action’ that could support members and partners developing plans through post pandemic recovery and renewal.
tsiMORAY contributed to this report through submission to the Board’s Call for Ideas, and participation in related policy circles including the National Strategic Participatory Budgeting Group.
The Social Renewal Advisory Board was set up by the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government and the Cabinet Secretary for Social Security and Older People to drive thinking about how Scotland could renew itself - in terms of tackling poverty and advancing equality - in the post-pandemic period.
The final, independent, report contains 20 ‘calls to action’: structured around three themes:
Money and Work – everyone should have a basic level of income from employment and social security.
People, Rights and Advancing Equality – everyone should see their rights realised and have access to a range of basic rights, goods and services.
Communities and collective endeavour – we need to work together to deliver a fairer society and we need to give more power to people and communities and empower frontline teams.
It brings together the work of nine policy circles, a programme of public engagement and the work of the wider board.
