Standing up for Scotland is what we do

This is a great day for Lanarkshire.

Steel in Scotland – and in the UK – has a future. But it needs the right support from politicians. Not for the first time, the Tories at Westminster seem content to abandon an iconic industry to its fate – but the SNP’s approach in Scotland could not have been more different.

Mhairi’s Campaign Diary – Dumfriesshire

Campaigning in Dumfriesshire with our candidate Joan McAlpine was the next stop on my campaign trail.

The first visit of the day was to Doonhamers Boxing Club where Joan and I met some of its users. We got the chance to hear about the club and catch up with the Scottish welterweight title holder, Dennis Broadhurst, and his coach, Anne Armstrong.

Manifesto for the Islands

The SNP government is proud to champion all our island communities. As Scotland’s Minister for the Islands – the first ever – I’ve worked closely with island authorities to give them a stronger voice, and more control over local decisions. But we want to go much further.

Kicking off the first of two days of campaigning in the Northern Isles, Nicola Sturgeon has today launched the SNP’s manifesto for the Islands.

Transforming mental health support

Mental illness is one of the most important public health issues in Scotland today, with around one in three people affected by mental health issues in a given year. That’s why, in government, the SNP has made improving mental health services a priority.

Vital services protected by the SNP today

April 1st marks the day that many policy changes come into force, as a result of the Scottish budget passed by the SNP Government and the UK budget passed by the Tories. It also marks the day that tax hikes proposed by Labour and the Tories would have come into effect - but were blocked by the SNP.
