– First Local Authority to introduce free sanitary products in our secondary schools followed by our Council Buildings
– Free Reusable Nappy Scheme being the first Local Authority in UK to introduce this scheme in 2019 which can save parents up to £1300 per annum.
– One of First Councils to Own 2 Solar Farms enabling us to be one of the FIRST Local Authorities to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030
– Exempting Care Experienced Young People from council tax
– Introducing dedicated mental health counsellors in all our secondary schools
– First Community Wealth Building Local Authority in Scotland
