About us

Jubilee Scotland wants to see millions of people lift themselves out of poverty as more governments in developing countries stop paying back unjust and unpayable debts and invest more in citizen-determined needs, such as health, education and livelihoods. Read more about us at: jubileescotland.org.uk

This year we are focusing on PFI contracts in Scotland. A UK National Audit Office report found that in some cases “PPP projects revealed costs around 40% higher than the costs of a project financed by government borrowing”. Local Authorities are already cash-strapped and struggling to fund vital public services. We want to end the system where short-term thinking and private greed are draining the public purse.
