CAMPAIGNS are the life-blood of local newspapers and the Glasgow Evening Times has a long and proud history of fighting for the issues that matter to local people.

From targeting slum landlords after the death of two students, to changing organ donation laws, demanding more cash for pothole repairs and even helping safeguard Hampden Park, our campaigns have covered crime, health and social concerns and have led to new laws being made.

Glasgow Times:

Our Hands off Our Jobcentres campaign, launched in the light of plans to close many around the city, was backed by politicians, charities, community groups and celebrities including I, Daniel Blake director Ken Loach and helped save some from the axe.

In 2018, our efforts led to Glasgow City Council introducing life-saving CPR in all secondary schools while Bank.On.Us generated more than 5000 bags for the city’s foodbanks.

Glasgow Times:

Our ongoing Think Dementia campaign is challenging the cost of care for people affected by dementia.

Many of our campaigns are about celebrating what’s good about Glasgow. Our Streets Ahead and Community Champion Awards demonstrate our passion for rewarding the unsung heroes who work hard to improve the city for all.

But this time we want to do something different.

We would like Glasgow Times readers to decide what our next campaign leads the charge for.

Glasgow Times:

Perhaps there is a vital charity or health service under threat, or concern about rising crime in your area. It could be a parking gripe, a legal injustice or concern about an ‘unfair’ hospital policy.

Maybe you would like to see greater protection for the city’s historic buildings after the recent closure of the Iron Horse pub or there is a gap in the city’s transport provision.

There could be a health service or treatment that is unavailable in Glasgow or perhaps you have a suggestion for something new that could save lives in the city’s schools.

We are inviting our readers to get thinking and tell us what matters.

Callum Baird, editor of the Glasgow Times, said: “Campaigning about issues that matter to local people is at the heart of what we do as a newspaper. This is your chance to decide what we fight for.”
