Analysis

Question 3: Do you agree that either of the options suggested will not impact on any of the protected equality groups?

  • The majority of respondents feel that maintaining the current provisions or creating new provisions will not have any impact on any of the protected equality groups.
  • 8 respondents felt that there could be an impact on these protected equality groups. Making no new provisions may result in people "slipping through the net" putting the most vulnerable at risk.
  • YouthLink Scotland stated that they are "concerned that the introduction of new requirements and the changes to offence may be a barrier to community groups and organisations self-organising. These grassroot organisations often serve our most vulnerable, most in need or most excluded community members including those from protected equality groups."
