After several years, the Growing Up in Rural Scotland programme has reached the end of its funding. Children in Scotland thanks all those organisations and individuals – especially the members of the Rural Advisory Group - who contributed to the success of the programme over the years.
Summary of programme 2007/08
The aim of the 2007/08 Growing Up in Rural Scotland programme was to continue to develop a sense of connectedness between Childcare Partnerships working in rural Scotland, achieved through in-person interaction and information sharing.
The theme of the 2007/08 programme continued the exploration (which began in 2006/07) of how community planning across rural Scotland takes into account children’s needs and includes the participation of children, parents and children’s services providers.
Key activities of Children in Scotland’s 2007/08 GURS programme:
A national conference around the key themes emerging from the research carried out will be organised for March 2008.
