1.6 Scottish National Equality Improvement Project (SNEIP)

The Scottish Ministers have a legal duty to publish a set of proposals every four years to assist public authorities in Scotland to eliminate discrimination, progress equality of opportunity and foster good relations. The first set of proposals were published in December 2013 with a progress report published in 2015. A fresh set of proposals will be published in December 2017.

To assist with the implementation of the proposals, the Scottish Government established the Scottish National Equality Improvement Project ( SNEIP) in 2014.

The 2016 SNEIP work plan concentrated on creating opportunities for Scottish public authorities to share ideas, knowledge and best practice amongst one and other.

During the course of 2016, work was ongoing to develop content for a conference which would be open to equality practitioners working within Scottish public authorities.
