Review of National Outcomes: consultation and call for evidence

There is still time to take part in the Scottish Government review of the National Outcomes, which closes on the 12 June 2023. The review is required within every five years, under the Community Empowerment Act (2015).

The National Outcomes are laid out in the National Performance Framework. This is Scotland’s wellbeing framework, which sets out the type of Scotland we want to see, and measures progress towards the National Outcomes.

The National Outcomes set out the kind of Scotland we all want to see. It is therefore vital that we hear from rural and island communities in Scotland about what matters most to you, so that we can ensure the National Outcomes reflect our shared priorities. Our collective wellbeing is a matter for all of us – government, charities, communities, businesses and people – working together to make these National Outcomes a reality. This consultation will inform the National Outcomes we work towards for the next five years. 

Alongside the written consultation, there is a Call for Evidence as part of the review. The Scottish Government will also be reviewing previous consultation exercises to understand more about what matters most to communities in Scotland and meeting with stakeholders.

The consultation closes on the 12th June 2023. To take part follow the link here
