Participation request summary guidance

Image from resourceSCDC has developed summary guidance to accompany part 3 of the Community Empowerment Act on participation requests.

Participation requests are a new way for people to have their say about what improvements they would like to see made to the services they use.

Community groups can make a participation request in order to start a dialogue (or "outcome improvement process") with a public service authority (local authorities, health boards and a host of other bodies) about improving how things are done.

The summary guidance provides a plain English summary of what participation requests are, as well as helpful illustrative examples and a flow chart to help you through the process.
