Derek Mackay MSP is calling on Renfrewshire’s residents, community groups and businesses to take part in a new national discussion about how Scotland can be a fairer and more equal place to live.
The national discussion is part of a Scottish Government plan to mobilise the nation to help tackle the scourge of intergenerational poverty and create fairer opportunities for all and build on the community-led discussions of the Referendum and General Election.
People are being invited to set out their own vision for a fairer Scotland and suggest practical solutions, based on local and personal experience.
The national discussion will take place over the summer and into the autumn, with public discussion events being planned to take place across Scotland.
People can take part in the ‘Creating a Fairer Scotland’ discussion in the following ways:

Renfrewshire North & West MSP Derek Mackay said:
“Tackling inequality and creating a fairer Scotland is something we should all be striving to bring about.
“But, it is very important that it is not just politicians who decide how this may be best reached. Community groups, businesses and local residents can all play a vital role in creating a fairer Scotland.
“I therefore welcome the Scottish Government’s national discussion and encourage people from across Renfrewshire to take part.
“The Referendum and the recent General Election energised people to take part in community-led discussions about Scotland’s future. This new national discussion will give these groups and individuals across Renfrewshire an opportunity to submit their views on how Scotland can be a fairer and more equal place to live.”
