The Four outcomes

Section 2 of the delivery plan sets out four outcomes the Scottish Government and its partners are working towards. The outcomes were developed and agreed in co-production with disabled people's organisations.

These outcomes are about disabled people having equal and inclusive access to:

1. the physical and cultural environment, transport and suitable, affordable housing

2. healthcare provision and support for independent living, with control over the best use of resources, including support for disabled children

3. to education, paid employment and an appropriate income and support whether in or out of work

4. the justice system without fear of being unfairly judged or punished, and with protection of personal and private rights

Nearly three-quarters (73%) of respondents agreed that together these four outcomes cover the key areas of life the Scottish Government and its partners must focus on to achieve the rights of disabled people.

Amongst those who agreed, disagreed, or neither agreed nor disagreed, key gaps were identified, primarily around the lack of focus on mental health, children, and social care. For some consultees these gaps meant that they could not endorse the four outcomes.
