Yesterday, I had a very constructive meeting with North Ayrshire Women's Aid in Saltcoats.
This lifeline specialist service offers practical and emotional support and advice to women and children affected by domestic abuse.
I had a chance to meet the dedicated and committed staff and volunteers who do this very important work, such as Mary Beglan, Dee Boyle and Margaret Nkembou.
Thank you to all the staff who gave me such a warm welcome.
I am looking forward to continuing a positive and constructive relationship with you all.
