For the 2021 elections to the Scottish Parliament, OneKind is calling on all parties and candidates to prioritise animal welfare in the next session.

To highlight the challenges currently facing Scotland’s animals, we’re hosting a series of webinars, aka Webinars for Welfare, to raise public awareness in the run up to the elections. Over the month of April, we’ll be joined by various other organisations as we discuss the main welfare issues set out in our 2021 manifesto, concerning companion, farmed, wild and laboratory animal welfare in Scotland.

Our webinars will take place via zoom, and will feature a 15 minute session at the end to answer audience questions. All webinars will be free to attend, but you can donate the cost of a ticket if you’d like to support our campaigns. Each donation will help us keep animal welfare on the political agenda and demand more for Scotland’s animals.
