Subjects covered are: Economy; Constitution, People and Parliament; Policing, Crime and Punishment; Education; Food Poverty, Housing and Homelessness; Land Reform; Health; Refugees and Migration; Europe and External Affairs; and Environment, Energy and Climate Change.

This is followed by a ‘How To’ guide on holding hustings events to equip groups to organise their own.

We would like to thank all those who contributed to the Scottish Elections 2016 resource - your help has been invaluable and will hopefully encourage churches and individuals to explore these issues more and hold their candidates and ultimately their politicians to account.
