Do The Rights Thing: Make Work Fair for Young People campaign

On Monday 4th November, we are launching our campaign with a focus on young people and their employment rights. Our campaign outputs will feed into our longer term engagement on young people’s rights at work, seeking to get a fair deal for young people. We want to gather the experience of young people and raise awareness of their rights at work, empowering them to take action on issues and increasing their public confidence and awareness.

The campaign will run for two weeks, during that time we will be working with a range of national partners such as NUS Scotland, Young Scot, Scottish Trades Union Congress and the Poverty Alliance. We will be supporting the Living Wage Foundation’s ‘Living Wage Week’, which launches on Monday 11th November, an ideal time to spotlight and highlight the need for fair pay in Scotland.

National Consumer Week 2018

National Consumer Week is an annual campaign, this year focusing on online marketplaces and the rights of consumers using them. This year's campaign launches on Cyber Monday - Monday 26th November.

Each year, National Consumer Week raises awareness of specific consumer issues. Every year covers a different topic and in previous years, the campaign has promoted awareness of issues such as electrical safety, subscription traps, and consumer rights. Launching on Cyber Monday, the campaign will focus on raising awareness of issues that consumers can face when using online marketplaces. Online marketplaces sell goods, such as GumTree, eBay and Amazon Marketplace. Generally the platforms don't own the good being sold, so the sales are often consumer to consumer.

This is a national awareness campaign and we hope to educate consumers about their rights when using online marketplaces, raise awareness of routes to redress where something goes wrong, and raise understanding amongst private sellers of their responsibilities when selling goods online. 

We want to make sure you know what your rights are when buying something online, and how they might be different from buying goods from different sellers or buying in person from the high street.

Take a look at our leaflet for an overview of your consumer rights when you use online marketplaces and information on what to do if something goes wrong.

Food on the Table campaign

The Food on the Table campaign ran throughout September and October 2018. The aim of the campaign was to give the Scottish public a voice on the affordability, choice and access to food through a public survey.

Although the survey has now closed, the results have been published and we will continue to look for opportunities to ensure that the lived experiences of those in food insecurity are heard.
