Online Public Engagement Events in May – Mother and Baby Unit (MBU) capacity in Scotland

The Scottish Government are hosting online small discussion group engagement events in May to provide another way for people to give us their views on the best way to increase Mother and Baby Unit (MBU) capacity in Scotland.

Events are limited to 15 places per event and booking is essential.

Notes will be taken at events and these will be included in the consultation analysis report. Contributions will be anonymised and identifying details will be removed. However, participants should only share information that they are comfortable disclosing in a public forum.

They are keen to hear a diverse range of views and would be particularly interested to hear from:

• Those living or working in remote or rural areas, including island communities, the North of Scotland, and Dumfries and Galloway and the Borders.

• BAME families or families who speak a home language other than English or those working with them

• LGBTI+ families or those working with them

• Disabled families or those working with them

However, events are open to all and anyone is welcome to attend.

If you or your networks would be interested in hosting a discussion event (virtual or in person) please contact to arrange.
