A free workshop on participation requests - Monday 11 June 2018

Tuesday 08th May 2018

A new way to have your say - a free workshop on participation requests

  • Monday 11th June 2018, 5.30 – 8.30 (with light supper from 5pm)
  • Angus Carers Centre, Ground Floor, 8 Grant Road, Arbroath, Angus, DD11 1JN.

Are there things about public services you would like done better? 

Do you think you and others in your community could help to improve public services if your ideas were listened to?

Participation requests are a new way for people to have their say about improvements they would like to see made to the public services they use. 

They are part of a piece of Scottish Government legislation called the The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act.

By making a participation request, a community group can start a discussion with organisations in charge of public services, such as hospitals, schools and transport, about how to improve these services. 

This free workshop for community groups and organisations is a chance to find out more about participation requests, how to make one and what to think about before you do.

The workshop is being delivered by Scottish Community Development Centre.
