As well as being a desirable outcome and characteristic of growth, Equity - social, regional, and inter-generational - is also a key driver of growth and jobs. Only by ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to succeed will we fully maximise the nation's potential.
Our key actions against this strategic priority include:
- A focus on preventative spend to tackle the social and health problems which prevent people from realising their potential
- Maintaining household incomes through freezing council tax and abolishing prescription charges to help families in tough times
- Delivering with key commitments including prioritising health budgets, abolishing tuition fees, and continuation of concessionary travel
- Supporting the development of an enterprising third sector in Scotland
