I would like to update on what has been happening with the adult respite campaign which I set up. My 38 Degrees petition still needs your support. Some significant progress has been made in terms of taking the petition to the Scottish Parliament, which will be the biggest milestone of the campaign so far.
One significant factor in helping get the petition to Parliament has been the involvement of the well known Scottish Labour MSP Jackie Baillie. Ms Baillie is already involved with the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign as she helps organise the Cross Party Group meetings on MD that are held at the Scottish Parliament every so often, and she already told me when I met her at an Action Duchenne lobby of parliament back in June that she was very willing to help support myself and all the other young adults with this campaign. It was great that she showed her commitment to helping us by coming to one of the CHAS Young Adult Council meetings to chat with myself and other affected young adults about how we can take the campaign forward.
