GCVS hosted MSP members of the Scottish Parliament Equality Committee as part of the Committee’s Draft Budget Scrutiny inquiry looking at funding, the third sector and human rights.  Many different charities and community groups shared their thoughts and concerns with Committee members looking at sustainable funding for charities and their role in protecting and promoting people and their rights.  Group discussions also raised concerns about public policies and services where the gap between well intentioned policy and service delivery was evident.

We’ve pulled together an event report, picking up the main points of discussion and key asks for the Committee.
