Achieving Our Potential: A Framework to tackle poverty and income inequality in Scotland

This Framework sets out further priorities for action and investment to deliver improvement in:

  • reducing income inequalities
  • introducing longer-term measures to tackle poverty and the drivers of low income
  • supporting those experiencing poverty or at risk of falling into poverty
  • making the tax credits and benefits system work better for Scotland.

It complements the Early Years Framework and  Equally Well, the report of the Ministerial Taskforce on Health Inequalities, all of which taken together form a coherent approach to addressing disadvantage in Scotland.
