Latest issue

The February - March issue of Children in Scotland Magazine presents a varied and exciting mix of content, centred around the theme: ‘Celebrating difference, catalysing change.’

Our feature interview with Satnam Singh of Sikh Sanjog explores the organisation’s vital role in breaking down barriers, building bridges and planting the seeds of independence in Scotland’s Sikh youth.

In our lead comment, Lynn Gilmour reflects on decades of progress on LGBT rights and explains why achieving our Silver LGBT Charter Mark is so important to Children in Scotland.

And in our members’ spotlight, Joanna McCreadie, CEO of Seamab residential school tells us how the school is thinking outside the box to support children to recover from trauma.

In the latest issue of Children in Scotland Magazine, you will learn about the work of face equality campaigners Changing Faces, LGBT Youth Scotland, Scottish Drug Forum, and Circle’s Women’s Outreach Team, as well as our upcoming Food Conference, Enquire’s development day for school support staff, and our joint campaign with National Autistic Society Scotland and Scottish Autism to prevent school exclusions for children with autism.

Plus, we share more responses to our 25 Calls campaign as 11-year-old Children’s Parliament Member Ben and the Life Changes Trust tell us why they’re backing Fiona Duncan’s call for everyone to support the care review.
