Our response to the Social Renewal Advisory Board's call for ideas for rebuilding a fairer Scotland after COVID-19

21 October 2020

Ideas are being gathered by the Scottish Government's Advisory Board on Social Renewal to drive a fairer recovery in the wake of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Advisory Board have asked organisations and community groups to share ideas and evidence, based on their experiences of responding to the pandemic and their engagement with people with lived experience of poverty and inequality.

The call for ideas will help the Board draw on lessons learnt during the pandemic in order to understand what needs to change to create a fairer, more equal society in Scotland.

At Obesity Action Scotland, we believe that we must improve the food environment, so that healthy choices are easy in Scotland: affordable, available and acceptable to all. We must ensure that a healthy diet is equally accessible to all.

The call for ideas will run until 23rd October.
