LPL_Vision_Cover_Mar16Members of the Scottish Community Alliance have come together to produce a shared vision for the future of the Scottish community sector. Recently they launched Local People Leading – A Vision for a Stronger Community Sector. The report highlights the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead and identifies what they believe needs to change if these challenges are to be met. And over the coming weeks, they will publish a series of short papers highlighting the specific contributions that the sector makes across many different areas of Government policy – and, most importantly, how that impact could be greater.

Scotland’s community-based networks have collaborated over a six-month period to produce this joint vision of how Scotland’s community sector can grow and develop. These national intermediaries represent a wide variety of community interests, with a collective membership spanning the length and breadth of Scotland. Together these networks form the Scottish Community Alliance.
