Your portal for TFN's coverage of the Scottish Parliament battle

On May 6, voters will go to the polls to decide the make up of the next Scottish Parliament.

It has been an election campaign dominated by the pandemic and the constitution – and its results could have big implications for the future of the country.

As with all national polls, TFN has been providing news and analysis on the battle for Scotland’s voluntary sector.

You can access our coverage here, where you can read leaders’ pitches – Nicola Sturgeon writes here, Alison Johnstone writes here, Anas Sarwar writes here, Douglas Ross writes here and Willie Rennie writes here.

SCVO also held a hugely successful online leaders’ debate – which you can read about here.

Meanwhile, TFN has been compiling the sector’s election manifestos – there are now approaching 100 of them, and you can find them here. We have also been compiling voluntary sector hustings - which you can see here.

While you’re at it, don’t forget to vote in our polls – first on the constituency ballot here and also on the list battle, here.

We have more analysis in the April edition of TFN magazine, and will add to this page as more comes in. I’ve been blogging about election issues here and here, and we have also reported on events such as the Youth Climate Hustings.

We’ll be linking to more of our coverage as we go along – so don’t forget to check back.
