Community Empowerment Action Plan

Community Empowerment Action Plan front coverThe Community Empowerment Action Plan, jointly developed with COSLA and colleagues in the third sector and announced in March 2009, encourages people in both rural and urban areas to participate in the running of their neighbourhoods.

The action plan provides clarity on what community empowerment is, why it is important and how communities can get involved.

A range of best practice examples from across Scotland are set out, providing information and inspiration for people who want to have a say in the decisions affecting their communities.
