Festive Celebration with First Minister - Kibble: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity
Posted: January 3, 2024

On Friday 8th December, two young people from Kibble were invited along to a festive celebration with the First Minister, Humza Yousaf, at his home in Bute House.

The special celebration was an opportunity for over 40 care experienced young people from across Scotland to meet with the First Minister and Natalie Don, MSP and Minister for Children, Young People & Keeping the Promise, to discuss some of the changes they would like to see.

After the canopes were served, it was time to gather around the table for a mini-cabinet meeting with the First Minister to explore some of the issues affecting young people today.

The question was posed “If you were going to be a Government Minister for the day, what changes would you make?”. This opened up valuable discussions around policies young people would like to change and legislation they would like to implement. There were questions posed around social housing, employability opportunities and more.  

It was a really exciting day for young people, particularly with the festive lights and bustling Christmas market nearby. We’d like to thank the First Minister, Natalie Don MSP and Who Cares? Scotland for opening this opportunity and making young people feel both welcome and heard.
