Getting on with the job this week

From new funding to support veterans to reducing energy bills, we’ve been getting on with the job.

Here’s how.
Latest figures show that Scotland’s hospital A&E waiting times continue to be the best in the UK.
New funding has been announced to improve the energy efficiency of homes in Scotland.
Scotland’s new devolved employment services begun work, with participants no longer subject to the Tory sanction regime.
Scottish Government funding for 19 veterans projects was confirmed.
New figures show that the number of low carbon and renewables jobs increased by a third in just one year.

At the UN, the First Minister announced new funding to train 200 women from war zones in conflict resolution and peacekeeping.

The First Minister signed a new agreement with the Governor of California to tackle climate change.

Funding to support businesses led by women has been doubled.
And Eilidh Whiteford MP became the first SNP MP to steer a Private Members Bill through Westminster. The Bill requires the UK government to ratify the Istanbul Convention, which seeks to prevent violence against women, protect women and prosecute the perpetrators.

 We’re working to make Scotland better still, join us.
