Partners in Policymaking Reception – Scottish Parliament

Guests at our Partners in Policymaking reception

Guests at our Partners in Policymaking reception

We held our Partners in Policymaking reception at the Scottish Parliament on 25th April 2017.  The event was sponsored by Fulton MacGregor, MSP and we were delighted to welcome over 50 guests on the evening.  The purpose of this event was to raise awareness of the Partners in Policymaking programme and how the programme can benefit people affected by disabilities.   Some of our graduates and current participants attended the event to share their own personal stories and talk about what they have learned from the programme and how this has helped them and their families make positive changes and move forward.  The feedback we have received so far from some of our guests has been amazing.  You can find out more about the event by clicking here.  Or if you would like to find out more about our Partners in Policymaking programme and how to apply for the next programme starting in September 2017, click here.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Fulton MacGregor, MSP, our speakers and all our guests for helping to make this a fantastic evening.
