Providing increased opportunities for all, including the most vulnerable in society, has been at the centre of the decisions taken at Spring Budget 2023. Older people, women, individuals from ethnically diverse backgrounds and disabled people are amongst those who will benefit from the actions taken, demonstrating this Government’s belief in fairness and equality of opportunity.

In developing proposals for the Spring Budget, the Treasury takes care to consider the equality impacts on those sharing protected characteristics, including gender, race, and disability, in line with both its legal obligations and this Government’s strong commitment to promoting fairness.
