At CARE for Scotland, we're passionate about equipping people across Scotland to be salt and light in the political process. Whether it's signing a petition, responding to a consultation or contacting your MSPs, we're here to help you do so effectively. Please do join us by praying for the 129 MSPs, Scottish Government Ministers, opposition parties, Committee Chairs and Members, that the Scottish Parliament would be a place where great good is done for Scotland.
Our Vision for Scotland
Because of the kingdom of God, we are persuading society to be:
Free from the slavery of prostitution.
Human rather than robotic.
Providing consistent and quality palliative care.
Free to express faith.
To help these values flourish in our society we help local churches and Christians engage Scottish society in the following ways:
Lobbying – when we see any of our values mentioned above at risk, we provide resources, wisdom and advice to help you and your church speak to the Scottish and UK Governments with grace and truth.
Training – our Leadership Programme takes a small number of Scottish graduates from churches and places them with MSPs/NGOs to prepare them to be first class policy makers.
Resourcing – we are helping churches to frame the political issues of the day in a biblical and prayerful manner. We offer churches support and materials to navigate election time in a Christianly effective way that enriches their communities.
