ISBN: 9781786521620

Consultation on Draft Regulations for Participation Requests which goes through the process outlined in the Act and seeks views on the content of the regulations.

Executive Summary

Participation requests are a new process which will allow a community body to enter into dialogue with public authorities about local issues and local services on their terms. Where a community body believes it could help to improve an outcome it will be able to request that the public body takes part in a process to improve that outcome. Community bodies might use the Act to discuss with service providers how they could better meet the needs of users, to offer volunteers to support a service or even propose to take over the delivery of the service themselves.
