Matt Shiels leads conversation converging politics and civil society in Scotland.
In this first episode, we hear from Trussell Trust North East Area Manager, Michael Calder, and Scottish Labour Shadow Finance Secretary, Daniel Johnson MSP, dissecting the current desperate situation. From the ground, the day-to-day situation is discussed with a look at some long-term solutions to correcting the frightening rise in foodbank dependency. In an open exchange between civil society and politics, we ask, what can Holyrood do to alleviate the crisis for the Scottish people?
