Scotland now has ‘Community Empowerment’ legislation, growing co-production and participatory budgeting (or ‘community choices’) movements, and communities who are have shown the difference that community ownership of assets can make for making local places better. However, many of us who are working hard to change things locally can feel cut off from sources of support and connections that could help.
The Ingage team in Scottish Government, in partnership with national community support organisations, is inviting people who have practical advice to offer, people who are starting off and eager to connect to support – and anyone in between – to a day of advice, inspiration and connection. The Empowering our Communities pop-up day will take place on Mon, 26th June in Edinburgh.
