Building on the successful 2014 conference, Scottish Government and partners have organised a national conference for 2015. Community Planning Partnerships and service providers will need to be ready to demonstrate leadership, shared vision and ambition to instil the right working culture and behaviours through their CPP and localities, to tackle deep rooted inequalities and foster community empowerment. Practitioners working with and for local communities should be empowered to do things differently to effect change, and truly make a difference to people’s lives.
The aim of the conference is to share good practice, explore new ideas and identify practical solutions to overcome barriers in tackling the key themes of economic development, tackling inequalities and fostering community empowerment. We will also start to explore the themes of Democratic Renewal.
The programme also provides case studies featured at the conference.
