AWICS Scotland News

Welcome to our e-newsletter: The ‘AWICS Scotland News’. This e-newsletter provides news about public services, especially housing and local government, in Scotland.

While our other e-newsletters, the ‘Public Services 'News’ and ‘AWICS Housing News’ continue to include articles of interest to people in Scotland, I think there is a need for a separate e-newsletter for Scotland to reflect the unique political, legislative, regulatory, social and economic situation in Scotland and the specific issues that arise.

We hope that you enjoy reading the e-newsletter. If you would like to give us feedback on this newsletter, or to submit an article or letter for publication, please contact Adrian at Adrian.waite@awics.co.uk
