Neil Findlay, Member of the Scottish Parliament for the Lothian region, met with representatives from Aberlour, Scotland’s Children’s Charity last week.
The MSP was delighted to offer his support to Aberlour’s No bad end campaign that aims to ensure that young people who have experienced issues surrounding poverty are provided with the support that will allow them to look forward to a bright future.
Aberlour has vowed that having a bad start to life does not mean that it should lead to a bad end.
Labour MSP Neil Findlay has argued that it will take radical action in order to eradicate poverty from society.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“Aberlour continues to support young people who have experienced a life blighted by poverty helping them to be the best that they can be.
“However, the Scottish Government must do so much more to tackle the structural inequalities that still exist today. We must use the powers of the Scottish Parliament in a much more radical way.
“Only Labour offers an anti-austerity programme that will end poverty in Scotland, and across the UK.
