Scottish Government Disability Delivery Plan

This Delivery Plan is part of the Scottish Government programme for a fairer Scotland. It has been shaped by the experiences of disabled people and the insights of disabled people and the organisations that represent them. It has been informed by the evidence and consultation on the draft disability delivery plan and by the Fairer Scotland conversations. It is built around five longer-term ambitions and a set of over 90 actions.

Five ambitions

  1. Support services that promote independent living, meet needs and work together to enable a life of choices, opportunities and participation. Health and social care support services are designed to meet – and do meet – the individual needs and outcomes of disabled people.
  2. Decent incomes and fairer working lives. Making sure disabled people can enjoy full participation with an adequate income to participate in learning, in education, voluntary work or paid employment and retirement.
  3. Places that are accessible to everyone. Housing and transport and the wider environment are fully accessible to enable disabled people to participate as full and equal citizens.
  4. Protected rights. The rights of disabled people are fully protected and they receive fair treatment from justice systems at all times.
  5. Active participation. Disabled people can participate as active citizens in all aspects of daily and public life in Scotland.
