Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) and What Works Scotland have been conducting research to explore how community councils can be strengthened. We would like to invite you to this National Seminar to discuss the report findings and to help come up with some follow up actions.

The National Seminar will be held on Tuesday 23 April 11am - 3:00pm at Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation - High School Yards, Infirmary Street, Edinburgh EH1 1LZ. (https://edinburghcentre.org). Registration will be from 10:30am, and tea and coffee will also be available from then. Lunch will be provided.

The report reflects the discussions which took place with community councillors and statutory sector partners at regional workshops in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Elgin, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, the responses to our online survey (591 community councillors responded) and a review of existing literature on community councils and similar models around the world.

The report is currently being finalised and will be sent out to all who took part in the research in the lead up to the event. Apologies once again for the delay in producing findings and thanks for your continued patience.

This research has been funded by Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) and What Works Scotland and explores the role of community councils within the current context of democratic renewal and community empowerment.
