Standards branding

The new revised National Standards for Community Engagement were launched on Thursday 29th September 2016 by the Minister for Housing and Local Government, Kevin Stewart MSP, in Kelty Community Centre in Fife.

The Minister said that the days of communities being told what to do are in the past, and that we are now seeing, right across the country, communities becoming involved in every aspect of decision making. Engaging with communities leads to better decisions, he added. The Minister welcomed the revised National Standards for Community Engagement as a framework for supporting the participation and empowerment of communities.
