Oxfam/SCCS Candidate Cafes

The Scottish election in May 2016 creates an opportunity for every political party to commit to creating a more equal Scotland within a more equal world. In October, Oxfam outlined our policy priorities for the Scottish Parliament both now and beyond the election - read our policy paper.

We know the Scottish Parliament can't do everything, but it can do more.

In the run-up to these important elections, we're giving you the chance to chat to local political candidates about the issues that matter to you.

Oxfam is holding Candidate Cafe events in each of Scotland's eight electoral regions. One candidate from each of the five parties currently represented at the Scottish Parliament will be there chatting to members of the public. 

  • Edinburgh, Wed 9 March 5:30-7:30pm, St Andrews And St George's West
  • Irvine, Mon 14 March 5:30-7:30pm, Volunteer Rooms
  • Glasgow, Tue 15 March 5:30-7:30pm, Hillhead Library
  • Dundee, Sat 19 March 12:30-2:30pm, Discovery Point
  • Stirling, Mon 21 March 5:30-7:30pm, Council Chambers

Oxfam Scotland is proud to host these events in partnership with Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS).

As a charity, Oxfam is strictly non-party political. By registering to attend this event, participants agree to act with respect towards all candidates and fellow members of the public.
