National charity Children in Scotland and national agency for youth work YouthLink Scotland are developing an exciting new participation project, First Minister’s Question Time (FMQT), which will launch later this year. It aims to empower children and young people, particularly those too young to have a vote or whose voices are seldom heard, to express their views, opinions and needs directly to Scotland’s leaders.
As part of planning for the first FMQT event, Children in Scotland and YouthLink Scotland will be contacting schools in June and asking young people to submit questions. An education resource linked to the project is also being developed which will be shared with schools.
If you are interested in hearing more about the project and would like to be sent further information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with ‘FMQT project’ in the subject line.
