Event Details

The Scottish Parliament are proposing changes to the disclosure system in Scotland, making it fairer and strengthening safeguarding. These proposals include a mandatory PVG Scheme, a more proportionate system and a reduction in the number of disclosure products. In addition, it is proposed that childhood convictions will no longer be automatically disclosed and will be eligible for independent review. A copy of the bill can be found on the Scottish Parliament website.

Disclosure Scotland are keen to work with our stakeholders to inform and further engage with you on how best to deliver the Disclosure (Scotland) Bill. They are holding a series of events in July and August 2019. Contact the Customer Engagement Team at dsworkshop@disclosurescotland.gov.scot for more info.

11jul9:30 am4:00 pmNational Summit on Preventing and Eradicating Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

more

Event Details

The new Female Genital Mutilation (Scotland) Bill is was introduced at the end of May. The Scottish Government published the National Action Plan to Prevent and Eradicate FGM in February 2016, which sets out a series of objectives and actions that fall under three main categories: Prevention, Protection and Provision. The plan is set to expire in 2020, and we are now beginning to consider what our next steps should be.

 

We will be using this summit as an opportunity to gather all of our key stakeholders to discuss the Scottish Government’s approach to preventing and eradicating FGM. This includes discussions around the new FGM Bill; and reviewing the progress that has been made since the publication of the FGM National Action Plan, including recognising areas of success and good practice, along with areas where further work may be required to drive progress.

 

An agenda, along with any relevant papers, will be circulated no later than two weeks before the event.

23jul10:00 am12:30 pmTackling child poverty in North Ayrshire: Challenges and opportunities

more

Event Details

Scotland has ambitious targets to reduce child poverty by 2030. Delivering on these targets will require action from national and local government in Scotland, as well as from organisations in the third and private sectors. But what actions will make the biggest difference, what matters most to people living on low incomes, and what do we know about what works right now?

This event – hosted in partnership between the Poverty Alliance and North Ayrshire Council – will look at the opportunities and challenges that exist in North Ayrshire for addressing child and family poverty, and how these challenges can be addressed using the voices of people experiencing poverty. Specifically during the event we will:

  • discuss the commitments that are being made in the new North Ayrshire Local Child Poverty Action Report;
  • hear more about the approaches that are being taken across Scotland;
  • explore how community and voluntary organisations, and people with direct experience of poverty, can feed into the development of action to tackle poverty.

At the event you will also learn more about the Get Heard Scotland initiative, which is working to ensure people with experience of poverty and those working on the frontline can feed into the development of anti-poverty policy at local and national levels.

This event is for everyone who wants to better understand the Scottish Government’s approach to addressing child poverty, who wants to know how child poverty is being tackled in North Ayrshire, and who wants to contribute to shaping local and national priorities.

The event is free to attend, with travel and caring costs reimbursed for people living on a low income. Please let us know (by emailing neil.cowan@povertyalliance.org) if you will need these costs covered.
