NPF: National Performance Framework

NB: 'NPF' can also refer to Scotland's National Planning Framework (see LDP).

Scotland's National Performance Framework [source:]


The framework is for all of Scotland. We aim to:

* create a more successful country
* give opportunities to all people living in Scotland
* increase the wellbeing of people living in Scotland
* create sustainable and inclusive growth
* reduce inequalities and give equal importance to economic, environmental and social progress


The values guide our approach, to:

* treat all our people with kindness, dignity and compassion
* respect the rule of law
* act in an open and transparent way


To help achieve its purpose, the framework sets out ‘National Outcomes’.

These outcomes describe the kind of Scotland it aims to create. They:

* reflect the values and aspirations of the people of Scotland
* are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
* help to track progress in reducing inequality

The national outcomes are that people:

* grow up loved, safe and respected so that they realise their full potential
* live in communities that are inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe
* are creative and their vibrant and diverse cultures are expressed and enjoyed widely
* have a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy
* are well educated, skilled and able to contribute to society
* value, enjoy, protect and enhance their environment
* have thriving and innovative businesses, with quality jobs and fair work for everyone
* are healthy and active
* respect, protect and fulfil human rights and live free from discrimination
* are open, connected and make a positive contribution internationally
* tackle poverty by sharing opportunities, wealth and power more equally
