The June -July issue of Children in Scotland Magazine is available now!
In this edition of Children in Scotland Magazine, we are excited to bring together a range of expert voices on the early years in Scotland, leading on from our 25 Calls campaign in which Sally Cavers and Anthony O'Malley argued that we must ‘Prioritise integration, support for families and participation to give children the best start’.
- In our features section, we share a thought-provoking conversation between Aberlour CEO SallyAnn Kelly and developmental psychologist Suzanne Zeedyk on the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) approach, and an interview with Dr Ingela Naumann, who says that we all must ask ourselves what kind of society we want Scotland to be – and shape our early years policy from there.
- In Agenda, Upstart Scotland’s Sue Palmer calls for a more unified approach to push for large-scale reform, while Alan Sinclair (author ofRight from the Start) stresses the importance of supporting family relationships from the earliest stage, and a selection of experts share their view on what the number one policy priority in early years should be.
- And in a special section on innovation and best practice, we highlight examples of new approaches to improving the lives of young children around Scotland.
- Plus much more!
