Crofting issues are well represented on the NFUS Crofting, Highlands & Islands Committee (CHIC). Our crofting membership has been growing steadily over the last few years and we have been successful in raising crofting issues to the fore in the development of wider NFUS policy. NFUS are active members of the Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group on Crofting, the Scottish Government Crofting Stakeholder Forum and other related groups looking at issues such as common grazings, the Croft Register and crofting law reform.
