After an extended break, our newspaper review is back and this week we are joined by Shelagh Young, Home-Start UK’s Scotland Director.

Shelagh looks at the local and national elections and the importance of speaking to all candidates about the work that Home-Start does in your local community. You can also read Shelagh’s blog about how to get involved with your local candidates in Scotland here.

We also discuss the Heads Together campaign, and the importance of talking about mental health, which Shelagh links to the new mental health strategy in Scotland.

You can read the blog by Emily-Jane Clark that we mentioned on the Metro website here.
