Families Outside Parliamentary Event
Families Outside will be hosting an event at the Scottish Parliament on 20 September from 6.00pm to 7.00pm to inform our attendance at the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child General Day of Discussion. The UN Discussion will take place in Geneva on 30 September – this year focuses on Children of Prisoners.
The purpose of the Parliamentary event, lead by Families Outside, is to gather the voices of children and families of prisoners, key professionals and interest groups in order to feed in to the United Nations’ Discussion and inform Scottish policy in turn.
Sponsored by Christine Grahame MSP, we encourage attendance from families in particular, as well as from other relevant parties such as MSPs, the Scottish Commissioner for Children & Young People and those from voluntary and statutory sectors.
Meantime we are taking notes of interest – 0131 557 9800.
