After the recent success of our SMP Faith Links Conference last month, we heard overwhelming feedback from our members asking that we host regional meetups, specifically for our faith-based members across Scotland.
Over the summer, Member Services Officer, Grace travelled around Scotland hosting informal coffee catch-ups with our members in the Borders, Fife, Aberdeen, and Oban (Glasgow & Ayr were postponed). These meetups were an opportunity to network and update each other on ongoing work in Malawi, as well as to feed into the work of the SMP and what more we could be doing to support these links.
We also talked through the incredibly useful outputs from our latest Faith Conference in Edinburgh in June, where we held a live Q&A with a panel of faith-based experts in Malawi. Read the full report from the conference >>.
In keeping with the informality of these catch-ups, Grace will publish a short blog detailing her travels, including the commonly asked questions and overall feedback. Stay tuned!
