The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, places a new duty on Scottish Ministers to consult on, develop and publish a new set of National Outcomes for Scotland, in place of the existing (non-statutory) framework). The public consultation Phase of the review involved consulting with the public on what kind of Scotland they would like to live in. This has apparently already taken place, carried out through a series of public discussions and street stalls run by the Carnegie UK Trust and Oxfam Scotland.
Phase Two of the review is seeking the views of “expert stakeholders (e.g. practitioners, analysts and policy makers)” on a new set of National Outcomes and possible changes to the current format. A series of ‘Structured Conversations’ is under way. We understand that places are still available at the remaining events:
|Monday 27 February 2017||10.30-12.30||Children in Scotland, Edinburgh|
|Monday 27 February 2017||14.00-16.00||Children in Scotland, Edinburgh|
|Tuesday 28 February 2017||14.30-16.30||Young Scot, Edinburgh|
|Wednesday 1 March 2017||10.30-12.30||Atlantic Quay, Glasgow|
|Wednesday 1 March 2017||14.00-16.00||Atlantic Quay, Glasgow|
In addition the deadline for responses to an online survey for “policy makers, practitioners and expert stakeholders from public, private or third sector organisations which are directly or indirectly involved in the delivery of the NPF National Outcomes”, but not apparently “the general public”, has been extended to 7 March and we are asked to forward the survey to partner groups if we think they would like to take part in the survey.
