Brexit – What Matters to You – A Local Conversation in Govan

The Health and Social Care Alliance are hosting an event in the Pearce Institute in Govan on the 30th April, seeking local views on Brexit. We would love for you to be able to join us and share your views. You can sign up for the event on Eventbrite here.

  • Location: The Pearce Institute, Govan
  • Date: 30/04/2018
  • Time: 6:00 – 8:00pm
  • Address: 840-860 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 3UU

 

We will be joined by Michael Russell MSP, the Scottish Government Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe, who will provide an update on where negotiations stand at this point.

At such a significant time in the Brexit negotiations, local communities and the third sector have a critical leadership role to play in shaping the debate across Scotland.

Debate so far has largely taken place at a strategic level, but these events will give local people the chance to correct this and have their voices heard. Their contributions will then feed directly into negotiations at a national level.

Each local conversation will have its own theme, with our evening in Govan examining the potential impact leaving the European Union may have on inequalities in Scotland. However, we do not expect discussions to be restricted to this topic alone.

Our initial Town Hall Conversation in Campbeltown covered a wide range of subject areas from immigration, to farming, to regulation. However, interestingly, a lot of people who attended raised issues which we had already heard from a survey of our members, which you can read here. People were concerned about the future of the health and social care workforce, youth engagement and the overwhelming feeling of uncertainty engulfing the debate.

Following on from this initial event, we are hoping for similar engagement in Govan. We would love for you to be able to join us and have your say!

Tea, coffee and sandwiches will be available for all attendees. You can sign up for the event on Eventbrite here. If you require any further information, please contact Matthew Hilferty on matthew.hilferty@alliance-scotland.org.uk or 0141 404 0231.

Places are limited so an early reply would be welcome.
