The initiating meeting of a proposed Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group on Shared Parenting took place on Wednesday evening, January 17th.

15 individuals representing 10 parent and parenting organisations attended while apologies were received from three other organisation who couldn’t make it on the night.

The meeting was convened by Ian McKee (SNP). Gillan Martin and Bob Doris (both SNP) and Adam Tomkins and Finlay Carson (both Conservative) attended while apologies were received from Kate Forbes (SNP) and Andy Wightman (Green).

The meeting discussed and confirmed the name of the group, its aims and objectives and the shape of a prospective work programme, summarised as a wideranging exploration of relevant research, insight and information from within Scotland and abroad.

Three co-conveners were agreed: Ian McKee MSP, Adam Tomkins MSP and Gillian Martin MSP.

FNF Scotland will provide the secretariat support.

Proposed Cross Party Groups must be formally approved by the Scottish Parliament Procedures and Public Appointments Committee. The application will be submitted by Ivan McKee to the next available meeting.

Building up on twitter

FNF Scotland is hoping to build up a greater presence on twitter. It will be useful as a channel for getting out quick responses to news stories that may interest members and the wider shared parenting community. It will also be handy for getting out our own news - about monthly meetings and events. And finally, RTs (retweets) can be an effective way of spreading news and requests - for example our pressing need is to find new office accommodation.  Our twitter tag is @FNFScotland. Please follow us so we can spread the net wider. Thanks.
