Communities Channel Scotland: one year on
It is now a year since the launch of Communities Channel Scotland in June 2014.
In its first year the Communities Channel has:
- Profiled 71 community organisations (and counting!) from all around Scotland as ‘Spotlights’.
- Highlighted and linked to 111 useful resources for community groups to help them know their community, grow in strength and show what they are doing to others.
- Developed special Features pages on important developments that may have an impact on your group such as the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill and Participatory Budgeting.
- Been viewed by an average of 400 visitors per month (and growing!).
Communities Channel Scotland provides support to local groups and organisations to grow and connect with each other by sharing the stories and experience of community groups and organisations in their efforts to improve their communities, and by highlighting resources that can help groups in their work. In addition, the website provides regular news stories on any developments affecting community groups, whether at a national or local level.
Please send us the latest updates from your community group and get in touch if you would like us to spotlight your achievements.
