Cross Party Group on Poverty – Report of inquiry into poverty-related stigma in Scotland

The Cross Party Group on Poverty in the Scottish Parliament is a forum for exploring the drivers of and solutions to poverty in Scotland. It acts to connect MSPs with organisations working to tackle poverty, as well as with people living on low incomes across Scotland, in order to better inform anti-poverty policymaking and contribute to the ending of poverty in Scotland.

In January 2022, the CPG on Poverty launched an inquiry into poverty-related stigma in Scotland. This report provides an overview of the written evidence submitted to the inquiry and incorporates evidence discussed within the sessions outlined above. The report concludes by making a number of recommendations around how we can tackle poverty-related stigma in Scotland.
