SCARF - Scottish Community Action Research Fund (2003 - 2009)

Client: Communities Scotland

Over the last 3 years the Scottish Community Development Centre has managed Stage 1 of the Scottish Community Action Research Fund (SCARF) on behalf of Communities Scotland. This stage involves mentoring support to develop research skills and plans.  From 2006, SCDC has taken responsibility for managing Stage 2 as well.  In this stage, communities are supported by SCDC to design and carry out a piece of community-identified action research.
