East Ren MP congratulates councillor on new COSLA role
I'm delighted to congratulate Councillor Tony Buchanan on his recent election as Spokesperson on Children and Young People for the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA).
Tony is a dedicated and hardworking councillor who has a track record of delivering results locally.
People are struggling right now as inflation soars. This cost-of-living crisis poses a particular challenge for young people. Research by the Childhood Trust showed that 47% of children feel stressed due to the cost-of-living crisis.
I know that Tony will be a strong advocate for children and young people in his new role, and I wish him and his colleagues on the COSLA Leadership Team every success in their work to support vital service delivery across Scotland.
