SCDC report on Strengthening Community CouncilsSCDC and What Works Scotland have published a report that explores how community councils can contribute to democratic renewal.


Strengthening Community Councils looks at how community councils can be even more relevant in Scotland’s evolving policy context, especially as public service reform continues through the Local Governance Review.

As part of the research, SCDC and What Works Scotland heard from more than 600 people involved in community councils to hear about the role they play in the democratic landscape - and what could change to improve how they represent local communities going forward.
