Issue 3 (Winter 2022)

Published November 2022.


As we approach the end of the year, the conversation continues around how to mitigate the cost-of-living crisis that is impacting so many families. But as we look to address these new, and growing, challenges we must be mindful not to forget about the old ones.

This latest edition considers some of the challenges facing our most disadvantaged communities. From addressing stigma and campaigning for equality for those who are Care Experienced, to those facing homelessness or dealing with childhood trauma and disadvantage, this issue discusses how we can make progress on addressing some of our society’s most complex challenges.

In this issue:

  • We interview Kenny Murray, Who Cares? Scotland’s Director of Influence and Engagement about why lifelong support for Care Experienced people is vital, and how accountability is key
  • Magic Torch Comics highlight the power of comics in unlocking literacy
  • Dr Lynn McNair explores the opportunity of a later school starting age in Scotland
  • Alison Watson explains why investing in long-term housing security will help thousands of children and families
  • Amy Woodhouse reflects on decades of mental health policies
  • Independent Living Fund Scotland share how the Transition Fund is creating new opportunities for young disabled people

We are also delighted to continue our partnership with the Edinburgh College of Art, showcasing work from students on the Postgraduate Illustration course.
