About our members

Our membership brings together the expertise and experience of dedicated professionals, united in the purpose of giving all children in Scotland an equal chance to flourish.

For some, the value of membership lies in strengthening knowledge and sharing ideas. This can take the form of access to:

  • Free training and events
  • Our bi-annual magazine Insight, a space for incisive comment, dialogue and celebration of changemakers in the sector, and
  • The monthly Members' News which pulls together resources, recommended reads and recruitment opportunities.

For others, membership is an opportunity to share the priorities and experiences of their organisation with like-minded colleagues across Scotland, and work together to promote best practice.

Our members recognise the value of working constructively to influence decision makers at local and national level. Through involvement in our policy work, our members contribute towards real change for children and young people in Scotland.
