A new way to have your say - workshops around Scotland on Participation Requests

Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) is working with local partners to give community groups and organisations the chance to find out more about participation requests, how to make one and what to think about before you do. By making a participation request, a community or voluntary group can start a discussion with organisations in charge of public services, such as hospitals, schools and transport, about how to improve these services. Visit SCDC’s website for the full list of workshops around the country.
