A north-east MSP has pledged his support towards the Scottish Youth Parliament’s childhood adversity campaign.
Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson visited those developing a resource which aims to spread awareness of childhood adversity.
Members are also calling for stronger rights to act as a shield for young people.
He said: “I’m so impressed by the determination of members of the Scottish Youth Parliament to have a real impact on Scotland’s political landscape and raise awareness of the impact of adverse childhood experiences.
“The Scottish Youth Parliament is a fantastic example of young people exercising their right to be at the heart of decisions which affect them.
“I hope that on the 30th anniversary year of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child even more young people will be encouraged to make their voices heard.”
