Children, not trams

Interviewed Chris McNaught, the retiring Director of Children and Families Services for the Church of Scotland’s Social Care Council (which operates as CrossReach), and have produced a couple of audio releases for distribution to local radio stations across Scotland.

In the piece I’ve called Children, not trams, Chris calls for government to reprioritise the way it develops legislation in order to provide more support for Scotland’s children. If government coordinated policy in favour of children, would there be trams in Edinburgh, he asks.

Chris also believes that the Church (especially a “national” Church, though that attribute is questionable nowadays) is in a good position to show the way at local level. He argues that social care is a vital function of the Church’s role in society.
