Getting in on the Act

December 6, 2016

A free workshop for community organisations

***Wednesday 25th January 2017, Scottish Community Development Centre***

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act is about to come into force. The final stages of its development are almost complete with statutory guidance drafted and regulations going through Scottish Parliament Committees. It's looking like the different parts of the Act will be in force early in the new year. 

This free workshop for community organisations is a chance to find out what the Act contains and how to make use of it in order to do the sorts of things you want to do as a community. The workshop will introduce you to:

  • New opportunities to be part of community planning processes in your local area.
  • How to use 'participation requests' to start a dialogue with public bodies about things that matter to your community.
  • Other parts of the Act, such as provisions around asset ownership and community food growing.

The workshop will take place on Wednesday the 25th January 2017, 1:30pm-4:30pm, SCDC, Suite 305, Baltic Chambers, 50 Wellington Street, Glasgow G2 6HJ 9 (map).

Please register your interest in attending here. There is already a high level of demand for this workshop, so we can't guarantee a place for everyone.

If you have any queries please contact Andrew Paterson, andrew@scdc.org.uk  or phone 0141 222 4837.
