Jim McCulloch News, Report

This issue of CHEX-point snippets contains a useful link to four government strategies or acts that affect local community organisations. I’m sure you will want to know about the Community Empowerment Act, Fairer Scotland, Participatory Budgeting and other issues concerning Local Democracy.

The Community Empowerment Act makes it easier for local communities to have more of a say in local decisions; Fairer Scotland addresses poverty and inequality; and Participatory Budgeting is a way for local people to decide how money is spent in their area. If this tickles your interest, read all about these and other local initiatives in the Communities Channel Scotland linkĀ here.
