Communities in Scotland can now make use of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act, which came into effect in April 2017.
The Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC), in partnership with Community Health Exchange (CHEX), will be delivering a free workshop for community organisations on Tuesday 27th March, 10am – 1pm at the CVS Falkirk office, Unit 6, Callendar Business Park, Callendar Road, Falkirk, FK1 1XR.
Attendees will have the opportunity to find out what the Act contains and how community-led health organisations, and other groups they work with, can use it to take forward their ideas.
As well as providing a general overview, the workshop will cover:
- how community organisations can use participation requests to start a dialogue with public bodies, including health boards and local authorities, about things that matter to them
- changes to community planning and how community groups might be able to have their voice heard
- provisions around asset transfer and community right to buy land
