Equality Commission investigate decision not to include under-18s in High St Voucher Scheme

AN investigation into the Department for the Economy's decision to exclude under-18s from the High Street Voucher Scheme has been launched by the Equality Commission. The investigation follows a complaint from a young person who alleged the department failed to comply with its approved equality scheme when deciding to offer the cards only to those aged 18 and over. The deadline for spending the GBP100 voucher passed at midnight.

The department had previously carried out an equality impact assessment into the exclusion that it published in September, stating the "impact regarding age is judged to be minor". It also suggested there were regulatory concerns about issuing the cards to under-18s. The complainant is being assisted by the Children's Law Centre in outlining concerns to the Equality Commission.

Claire Kemp, Policy Officer at the Children's Law Centre said: "Decision-makers have a duty to ensure the decisions they make do not adversely impact or discriminate against sections of the population. This includes children and young people. To ensure they avoid making decisions that discriminate they have to carry out an equality screening exercise at the earliest opportunity.

In this case it was clear the Department for the Economy failed to do that. "We're happy to assist this young person in their complaint and are pleased the Equality Commission has authorised an investigation. The department was in the position to publicly announce the High Street Voucher Scheme in February 2021 but evidently failed to carry out an equality screening exercise until the young person complained.

Meanwhile, UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced that funding to tackle Covid in the north is to be doubled.

The executive will now receive GBP150 million and Mr Sunak said: "We will continue to listen to and work with the devolved administrations in the face of this serious health crisis."

A yearbook the whole family can enjoy

CHRISTMAS is a time of tradition involving gifts, visiting relatives, bringing trees into houses, singing carols and fattening up on turkey, sausage rolls and mince pies. One of the finest traditions is surely a Christmas Day stroll to work up an appetite or walk off those generous food portions. Forget snoozing on the sofa, why not make time to get out in the fresh air and while doing so keep lists of wildlife spotted on Christmas Day?

What you see will depend on how much daylight is left and where you live. A morning pre-lunch walk will yield more creatures than a twilight excursion. Inevitably, birds will dominate, although foxes drawn by cooking smells can be easily visible and grey squirrels will still be seeking nuts to stash.

Robins, one of our major festive symbols, alight from Christmas cards to be one of the few birds singing in gardens over the holiday. They should be visible along with starlings, magpies, crows, woodpigeons, tits and possibly woodpeckers and jays. Put out bird-food and your list will multiply.

Head for the local park where a lake should add gulls, moorhens, coots, a variety of ducks and possibly grey heron and cormorant to the haul. Aim for 20 species in an hour if the weather is ok. Make the walk interesting for children by offering prizes for the longest list and the rarest creature or bird seen.

There is no better place to keep lists than The Birdwatcher's Yearbook for 2022. It contains checklists of birds, butterflies and dragonflies with boxes to tick whenever you spot a new species. Space to log observations daily is complemented by a guide to 380 nature reserves, birding events diary, tide tables, directories of wildlife organisations, optical equipment companies, wildlife hospitals, birds of conservation concern, tide tables and other information all book-ended by articles on the status of birds of prey, the year's best wildlife books and local birdwatching.

In short this encyclopaedia-style annual contains everything you could wish to know about birdwatching and provides perfect facilities for record-keeping. The only wildlife book I use every day of the year, it is absolutely indispensable. The Birdwatcher's Yearbook, published by Calluna Books, costs GBP22 but may be obtained by readers of this column at a discount by ordering direct from editor Neil Gartshore on 01929 552 560 or [email protected]

Merry Christmas and happy wildlife watching in 2022.

Internet voucher scheme extended as delivery of R100 programme expected to lag years behind deadline

MSP Kate Forbes. MSP Kate Forbes.

A national voucher scheme helping people access superfast broadband is being extended by three months as the R100 programme aimed at delivering superfast broadband continues its super slow rollout. R100 was to reach all premises with superfast broadband by May but it has been hit by severe delays and work only really started this year amid acrimony over the contract award process. A stop-gap voucher scheme to boost broadband speeds through satellites, mobile and wireless solutions for homes and businesses unable to access fast internet speeds has been extended to March 31 next year.

Vouchers worth up to GBP400 for internet costs are available and for those in the hardest-to-reach areas an additional GBP250 can be sought. Economy Secretary Kate Forbes said: "The pandemic has reinforced the necessity for everyone to have access to fast, reliable broadband, whether for work, business, or their personal use. "We will make sure everyone - regardless of where they live - has access to an acceptable level of connectivity so they can be part of the digital world.

"Extending the voucher scheme will help ensure no-one is excluded while we continue to roll out superfast broadband solutions across Scotland.

"Accessing fast and reliable broadband has never been so important and for our more rural communities it is vital.

"That is why the Scottish Government is making substantial investments in digital infrastructure to ensure all of Scotland has access to high speed internet."

Save on Your First 12 Months of Loom with This Coupon

Loom featured image with video recording on screen.

These days, so many of us are working remotely or distanced from colleagues and clients. While you can always type out a lengthy email or log in to one of many chat services, nothing quite compares to face-to-face communication. This is especially true when it comes to delivering feedback or explaining nuanced ideas. Facial expressions and body language are often essential for comprehension, collaboration, and getting things done. Live video conferencing is one option, but it requires syncing calendars across busy schedules and different time zones. Loom's async video tool allows you to show it, say it, and send it -- no matter where you and your team are based. It's a new mode of communication for today's hybrid, global workforce.

With Loom, you can record quick videos of your screen, webcam, or both at the same time. You can then share the video instantly via a link with your colleagues. And for more evergreen content -- such as tutorials or presentations -- Loom acts as a video library, making it easier to share knowledge and training across an organization. It's an essential tool for hybrid workplaces, but also for anyone who needs to communicate or present from a distance. Loom is available on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.

So, it's never more than a quick launch away. From now until March 31, 2022, you will get 15% off your first 12 months when you use coupon code DT15 at checkout. That brings the 12-month Business plan -- normally £96 annually -- down to £82.

Get Loom for free!

No schedules. Always ready

With live video calls, you have to align everyone's schedule in advance. With Loom, you can record on your own time and your recipients can watch and digest the information when it works best for them.

Sometimes, live time is necessary -- such as for a brainstorming session -- but, you can make those meetings more productive by sending a loom in advance. That way, everyone has the context and background information they need to make the live time as efficient as possible. Plus, people tend to retain far more information when presented visually.

Because the videos are saved, easily shareable, and accessible later, you can use Loom to create a living library of resources for your team with walkthroughs, tutorials, and hot tips galore. What's more, Loom makes it simple to record your face as a bubble on top of screen content, so you can walk through an app or service, demo a task, or even share company insights. On top of all the productivity and collaboration goodness, Loom also makes it easier to connect with distributed teammates.

Send a thank you with confetti, react to a teammate's loom with emojis, or welcome a brand-new team member on their first day. It's a great tool for fostering connection and culture -- your team and customers will love it too.

  • Record your screen, camera, or both, all on your time
  • Available through a desktop app, Chrome extension, or mobile app (Android and iOS)
  • Videos are accessible anywhere, anytime
  • Deploy security for private content like restricting by email or setting up a password

Currently, Loom has been adopted across sales, engineering, design, marketing, product management, content creation, and so much more. Any task, concept, lesson, or discussion that's best presented visually, would benefit from Loom's support.

In sales, for example, you can establish an entire network of pre- and post-meeting recaps to advance the sale even when you're not present and active. You can also customize who sees your loom. You can publish across an organization or you can restrict by email address and with password protection.

You'll also gain access to engagement metrics like who has watched your videos, for how long, who has reacted or commented, and more.

Get recording, today

Loom offers a 14-day free trial of its Business plan, which includes unlimited creator seats, unlimited videos, unlimited recording length, transcriptions, closed captioning, and filler word removal. That's plenty of time to give the service a shot and see if it works for you and your team. Plus, until March 31, 2022, you can get 15% off your first 12 months when you use coupon code DT15 at checkout.
