Latest issue of Insight magazine now available

The Spring/Summer issue of Insight, the biannual magazine from Children in Scotland, has been published today.

Insight provides a space for reflection, sharing knowledge and driving dialogue.

It’s published twice a year, free to our members and also available on subscription.

In this fourth edition, we are focusing on positive change being led by children and young people. Dr Khadija Mohammed, Associate Dean for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the University of the West of Scotland, talks about young people raising their voices against racism and how the education sector is responding; the outgoing Children’s Commissioner Bruce Adamson is quizzed on the highs and lows of the job by our children and young people’s advisory group, Changing our World and we learn about the benefits of theatre-making from Young Quines in Fife.

Also in this edition:

  • Amy Woodhouse on the complicated legacy of Nicola Sturgeon and her record on improving the lives of children and families
  • Dr Alison Scott explores approaches to supporting mothers whose children have been removed into care
  • Raza Sadiq challenges the Illegal Immigration Bill as an assault on human rights
  • Laura Millar on why we need to redesign the child maintenance system
  • Ed Pybus at CPAG on targeted top=ups to the Scottish Child Payment

We are delighted to continue our partnership with the Illustration department at Edinburgh College of Art and this issue features the work of students on the MA Postgraduate programme.

Speaking about the new issue, Catherine Bromley, Editor of Insight said:

We hope that professionals across the children’s sector will find something to inspire them in this edition. The issues and themes – including the importance of embedding ant-racism in education, supporting mental health and wellbeing, challenging gender stereotypes and calling for solidarity in the face of the Illegal Migration Bill – are ones we feel will resonate with our membership and the children, young people and families that they support and represent.”

Insight is available in both print and digital format.
