Fond farewells: Celebrating the last edition of Children in Scotland magazine

7 June 2021

The latest edition of Children in Scotland magazine is now available. Celebrating the theme of new beginnings, it also marks the last issue of the publication in its current form.

Our June edition includes a farewell interview with former Chief Executive Jackie Brock and we reflect on the promises and commitments of the MSPs filling the chamber for the sixth session of parliament. In addition, we hear from projects looking to equip children and young people with skills to effectively navigate their future.

This issue also features our regular news round-up from the sector, reflections on the Climate Hot Seat event which saw politicians quizzed on their environmental policies, and the experience of a young first-time voter.

Jennifer Drummond, Editor of Children in Scotland Magazine, said:

“This edition of the magazine celebrates possibilities and embraces the theme of new beginnings, something we ourselves will be doing as we take the next steps in the magazine's evolution.

“After 20 years and more than 200 editions, the magazine is truly embedded in Scotland's children’s sector. I’m incredibly proud of the role it has played in sharing good practice and the platform it has provided for progressive policymaking and ensuring a better understanding of children's lived experience. The changes we are about to undertake will build on that history and reputation."

From late summer 2021, magazine content will move online to a new dedicated area of the Children in Scotland website and will be made available to you via our social media channels and e-news. Articles will be published on a rolling basis covering news, comment and projects.

Following this, in the autumn we'll be launching a brand new publication offering more in-depth analysis of issues impacting the children’s sector and the programmes and personalities shaping its future. The new publication will be available exclusively to members, and by subscription.
