This week, Craig is joined by Marion Macleod - an expert in social care and education for children and author of Common Weal's latest policy paper on a strategic plan for childcare. They discuss the current patchwork state of child and early years care in Scotland, how the latest Programme for Government perpetuates that even if the policies themselves may be valuable and how things could be greatly improved by a strategic and holistic plan for care sitting within a National Care Service.
Colin Turbett's recent appearance on the podcast was also reference along with his paper on how a National Care Service can be delivered through local Community Hubs.
