Community Development: Tackling Inequalities
The community empowerment agenda is intended to reduce inequality and promote social justice – but what does this mean in practice? How does community development practice tackle inequalities in our communities?
The theme of our conference this year was Community Development and Tackling Inequalities. The Conference explored both the challenges and opportunities in tackling inequalities and promoting social justice through empowering communities. There was exploration of community development responses including community action, community-led project delivery, and collaborative action across sectors which addresses the root causes of inequality and barriers to community participation.
Delegates will have a chance to respond to questions asked at the conference via a survey published in this month’s special bulletin.
As a national network of national and regional organisations which support community development we provide an opportunity for our alliance members to come together to learn, share and develop together as well as showcasing the impact our members are making in relation to tackling inequalities in Scotland.
