Martin Whitfield MSP has hosted a parliamentary reception for Together, an alliance of Scottish children’s charities that works to improve the awareness, understanding and implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

The reception brought together several of the more than 500 members of the alliance for the launch of its new Strategic Plan 2024-2032. The new plan progresses from UNCRC Scotland incorporation to implementation.

Speaking after hosting the reception, Martin Whitfield MSP said:

“Together is an amazing alliance that is doing vital work to help ensure that UNCRC Scotland incorporation is fully implemented to realise the transformation of children’s rights.

“I was delighted to host its parliamentary reception and have the opportunity to learn more about its exciting plans for the future.”
