A new way to have your say - workshop on participation requests in Fort William on 24 April

March 20, 2018

  • A free workshop on participation requests

  • Tuesday 24th April 2018, 11am-2:30pm, (with lunch)

  • Voluntary Action Lochaber, An Drochaid, Claggan Road, Fort William PH33 6PH

Are there things about public services you would like done better?

Do you think you and others in your community could help to improve public services if your ideas were listened to?

Participation requests are a new way for people to have their say about improvements they would like to see made to the public services they use.

They are part of a piece of Scottish Government legislation called the The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act.

By making a participation request, a community group can start a discussion with organisations in charge of public services, such as hospitals, schools and transport, about how to improve these services.

This free workshop for community groups and organisations is a chance to find out more about participation requests, how to make one and what to think about before you do.

The workshop is being delivered by Scottish Community Development Centre
