Date: Friday 13th October (morning or afternoon)
Venue: BRODIES LLP, 110, Queen Street, GLASGOW, G1 3BX

Cost to attend : £125 + VAT Public & Private Sector: £99 + VAT 3rd sector & Charitable Organisations

The Community Empowerment Act was introduced in 2015 to help empower community bodies through the ownership or control of land and buildings, and by strengthening their voices in decisions about  public services.

At its core is the principle and process of Community Planning where public agencies work together and with their communities to plan and deliver better services with the aim of making a real difference to people’s lives.

In the year following the introduction of the Community Empowerment Act Health & Social Care Partnerships (IJB’s) were introduced in Scotland where local authorities and health boards share the responsibility for delivering health & social care in their communities. Central to this activity is strategic planning, and development of locality based activity, with an emphasis on health and wellbeing.

This ½ day seminar will consider if there opportunities for local authorities, IJB’s, community and voluntary organisations using the Community Empowerment Act to empower communities to plan and deliver better preventative and supportive communities and environments.
