Community engagement is a way of developing a working relationship between public bodies (such as local councils) and community groups.

Good community engagement will mean that both groups can understand and act on the needs or issues of community experiences, helping to achieve positive change.

What we do

Community engagement is a key part of our work. We have developed frameworks for good community engagement, produced practical guides and regularly provide training and support to community organisations and public bodies.

Our staff are highly experienced in developing effective community engagement practice and provide training and advice as part of our services.

SCDC Community Engagement training
Our introductory training explores the principles, standards, processes and methods that underpin good practice in community engagement.
