Capacity building support for community organisations

Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) is pleased to announce an expanded package of support for community organisations across Scotland with the aim of increasing the capacity of community groups and organisations to effect change and contribute to the regeneration of their communities.

Between October 2013 and March 2015, SCDC aims to provide an average of 5 days consultancy support to around 100 community groups and organisations across the country. The nature of this support will vary depending on the particular needs or circumstances of the participating groups but may include; advice, guidance and signposting, access to tools and resources, training delivery, mentoring and practical support, and networking.

In particular, the support package is designed for groups that are operating in areas of disadvantage or that are facing high levels of exclusion or disadvantage, have a commitment to tackling disadvantage or inequalities, are going through a period of transition or change within their organisation, and are motivated to work with others and share their own experiences and learning.
