New SCDC briefing paper - 'Community Empowerment in Action'

community empowerment briefing cover

Preventative spend, the asset-based approach, co-production and community engagement - all increasingly recognised as important in good governance and public service delivery - can only succeed if the communities involved are properly equipped to participate and take advantage of any opportunity that may be available. So argues SCDC's latest briefing, Community Empowerment in Action: Making it happen, making it work, which is based on learning from our Achieving Community Empowerment (ACE) programme. The paper gives a concise background to empowering communities and why targetted community capacity building is necessary to achieve this. We also provide a set of key learning points for policy and practice in this area. Click here to download the resource.
