The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 provides a way to
- Engage communities in improving outcomes
- Encourages and promotes dialogue
- Tackle inequalities
- Support the increased participation of those whose voices are less heard or who face additional barriers
Participation requests allow a community body to talk with public authorities about local issues and services.
Where a community body believes it could help to improve an outcome, it will be able to ask that the public body takes part in a process to improve that outcome.
Part 3 of the Community Empowerment Act (external link) sets out the process for how participation requests will work.
If your group wants to make a participation request to us, please use our guidance notes and a request forms or contact us for advice.
