The October-November edition of Children in Scotland magazine is a special edition to mark our 25th anniversary and presents our 25 Calls campaign. With contributions from experts across civil society, Children in Scotland members, partners and staff, and young people, the campaign sets out 25 Calls for change to transform the lives of children in Scotland for the better.
From nutritional health consultant Donna Borokinni's manifesto for health education (p.15), to young activist Jade Mulholland's call to reform the Gender Recognition Act (p.30), to Poverty Alliance and Child Poverty Action Group's joint call to top up child benefit by £5 per week (p.19), through to our number one call from young people from the GK Experience and Possibilities for Each and Every Kid (PEEK) (p. 41), the campaign encompasses specific policy demands and broader calls for cultural change.
In Children in Scotland magazine, you can read all 25 Calls and accompanying articles by expert contributors.
About Children in Scotland Magazine
Children in Scotland Magazine is our flagship publication, providing essential reading for the sector.
Produced bimonthly, it offers diverse content updating you on the latest policies, projects and good practice impacting on children and families.
Each issue we interview a key decision-maker from the sector. We ask them questions of interest to our members and subscribers, with issues ranging from child rights to the arts, and mental health to equal protection.
Our Comment pages offer sharp analysis and viewpoints on current practice and policymaking, featuring guest opinions alongside a regular column from Children in Scotland Chief Executive Jackie Brock and contributions from members of our staff team.
The magazine’s Voices section showcases the perspectives and priorities of children and young people. In these pages we promote our participation and engagement activities, celebrate the work of our members, and hear from sector projects that are making their mark.
The magazine is published six times a year, in February, April, June, August, October and December.
