Andrew Paterson

🡐 Back to all staff


Policy Research Officer

Andrew joined SCDC as Policy and Research Officer in 2010, and works across most of SCDC’s work programmes. His work sits where community activity, community development practice and policy join up. This means both contributing to shaping policy and ensuring it has an impact on the ground.

Andrew has recently conducted action research into people’s understanding of participation requests (part 3 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act) and has helped develop SCDC’s response to the Scottish Government’s Democracy Matters conversation.
