Some groups of people are not as extensively involved as others in voting and the electoral process, and there is a risk of them not taking part in the 2016 Scottish Parliament elections. They include people who need extra social care support.
NDTi and Outside the Box are offering a development programme to build the skills of care providers. Staff can then help people they support to take part in the Scottish Parliament elections in May 2016.
The programme is based around Voting Champions, who then share the learning with colleagues and support practical activities with people who use support. This approach has been shown to have positive outcomes.
To find out more about Voting Champions, please see the following resources:
