Durham Public Policy Seminar Series: ‘Life Chances of Young People in Scotland’
(27 July 2017)
Naomi Eisenstadt, Scottish Government Independent Advisor on Poverty and Inequality, will be reflecting on and offering insights into her role with the Scottish Government, which has included engaging with academics, civil society organisations and young people, in particular her final report which makes recommendations about improving social mobility and life chances for young people.
In 1999 Naomi became the first director of the Sure Start Unit. Starting out in the Civil Service with responsibility for Sure Start local programmes, her portfolio grew over seven years to include early education, childcare, parenting policy, and extended schools. She then spent one year as the Secretary of State’s Chief Adviser on Children’s Services. Her last three years before leaving the civil service were as Director of the Social Exclusion Task Force.
