What we do
We work directly with community organisations, people who work in communities and with people who make policy.
We deliver large scale programmes across Scotland to help build the capacity of the community sector, support public agencies to work effectively with communities and to widen participation in local democracy.
We support and manage a series of networks, using our learning from these and working with communities and community practitioners to inform policy and legislation.
A major part of our work is providing research, training and consultancy services. All of our services are tailored to meet the individual needs of the organisations and partnerships we support. Find out more about our training.
We work closely with the European Community Development Network and the International Association of Community Development.
