Following the passing of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, the Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) has released a fantastic, easy to read briefing paper. Aimed at those involved in community development, the paper provides both an overview and a more detailed look of the provisions of the Act, particularly around community planning.
Where possible, the briefing paper provides explanations of technical terms and step-by-step lists of how the different provisions will work, along with lists of sources for further information and support.
SCDC will be publishing further briefings around the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act as the different provisions come into force.
Please read the SCDC briefing paper for further information.
