First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was on hand at the Sense Scotland Our Voice annual conference at Touch Base in Glasgow to help celebrate Sense Scotland signing up to the Charter for Involvement.
NIN member Ross Smith gave a short presentation about the Charter before Sense Scotland CEO Andy Kerr made the formal commitment to put the Charter into practice.
Our Voice members planned and ran the whole conference, with Ewan Farquharson an excellent Master of Ceremonies and hosting the First Minister Question Time. Questions about Brexit, the care sector, disability benefits, the value of professional carers and whether Nicola Sturgeon was happy and enjoying her job all featured.
It was a great day.
