All the key developments in Children in Scotland’s work and opportunities to be involved are communicated through our range of channels, summarised here.
Latest news and press releases
We share updates about our activities, ranging from project announcements to publication of consultation responses and resource launches, through our latest news stories.
Press releases, which include statements from our Chief Executive and Head of Policy, Projects & Participation and key project announcements, are issued to media contacts across Scotland.
Comment & Blogs
A mix of Children in Scotland staff members and representatives from organisations in our network provide regular blogs focusing on policy positions, children’s views and experiences, project work and findings.
We also publish a monthly blog from member organisations, originally made available in our Members News e-bulletin.
On our magazine web pages you’ll find topical news, comment and Q&As covering all the key issues relevant to the children's sector in Scotland today.
Published twice-yearly and offering profiles of changemakers in the children’s sector, policy analysis and incisive comment, Insight is a core part of our membership offer.
The Learning Guide, produced every January and June, showcases everything our award-winning learning programme has to offer to strengthen skills and knowledge in the children’s sector workforce.
With episodes on topics ranging from diversity in teaching to the role of young board members, our podcast celebrates projects, best practice and leading lights in the sector.
Every Monday and Thursday we send out an e-news bulletin to subscribers summarising child policy news, comment and analysis in the media.
Alongside you’ll find project and event updates – and the latest recruitment opportunities from organisations in membership with us.
