Roundtable Discussion

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 has the potential to significantly change the way that third sector organisations engage with the public sector and enhance the way in which communities and third sector organisations are involved in the planning and commissioning of children’s services.

The National Third Sector GIRFEC Project are hosted a roundtable discussion as part of the Scottish Government’s consultation on two of the provisions in the Act:

1.Participation requests – Part 3 of the Act will mean that where a community body believes it could help to improve a particular outcome in that community they will be able to request that a public body takes part in a process to improve that outcome.

2.Community Planning - Part 2 of the Act places community planning on a statutory footing focused on improving outcomes. It introduces a new planning framework with an emphasis on locality planning and involving local communities and organisations in this process.

A response to Scottish Governement on both parts can be viewed below:
