We value strong, inclusive communities for their own sake. One of the National Outcomes that the Scottish Government and COSLA have agreed to pursue is:
“We have strong, resilient and supportive communities where people take responsibility for their own actions and how they affect others”.
But community development also has a role in helping to deliver the Scottish Government’s declared Purpose:
“To focus Government and public services on creating a more successful country, with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish, through increasing sustainable economic growth”
It helps to deliver each of the Scottish Government’s five strategic objectivesfor the country. Community development helps to make Scotland:
- Wealthier and Fairer
- Safer and Stronger
