Training and services to support community development
Communities Matter is a suite of training and development support to community organisations and people working with communities across Scotland.
At SCDC we believe that communities matter. As the national lead body for community development in Scotland, supporting stronger communities is what we do.
Flexible training courses, across a range of areas, are designed to help you make a greater positive impact on the quality of life within your community, and the communities you work with.
Training can be provided as introductory workshops, in-depth training, practice support, training for trainers and bespoke consultancy or ongoing mentoring support - we're flexible to suit your needs.
Our training costs as little as £50 per person, and we're always flexible to ensure we can provide the best value possible - plus you'll get loads of training materials and resources. Find out more about our pricing here.
SCDC's experience stems from working directly with communities, practitioners and policy makers, promoting best practice in engaging with communities. We have used our experience to develop guidance and tools which help support the community development skills that matter. Find out more about our work here.
Our staff are highly skilled facilitators with years of experience and will make sure your training remains participative, informative and interesting. Find out more about our team's experience here.
