Political Shadowing Scheme

The CRER Political Shadowing Scheme was established to address the severe under representation of Black and minority ethnic (BME) individuals in the Scottish political arena.

It was designed to counteract this by empowering and inspiring individuals from BME communities to be actively involved in politics. The scheme gave those involved an opportunity to gain first hand experience of the work of an MSP or Councillor, providing a stepping stone into Scottish politics.
