Income Supplement Scotland

What is the Income Supplement the Scottish Government has committed to introduce to loosen the grip of child poverty?

Scotland is the only country in the UK with far reaching targets in law that aim to effectively eradicate child poverty by 2030.

As part of the Child Poverty Delivery Plan in 2018, the Scottish Government committed to introducing an income supplement via social security as part of their statutory duty to loosen the grip of child poverty.

There are many options available in terms of the form this supplement might take, and lots of questions to be answered. As well as exploring the uncertainties, we hope to lay out facts and figures that will help us all find the best option for Scotland.
