Local People Leading

A new vision document for the community sector, from all the member networks (including DTAS) of the Scottish Community Alliance.

Scotland’s community-based networks have collaborated over a six-month period to produce this joint vision of how Scotland’s community sector can grow and develop. These national intermediaries represent a wide variety of community interests, with a collective membership spanning the length and breadth of Scotland. Together these networks form the Scottish Community Alliance.

The report aims to distinguish the community sector from other parts of the broader third sector, as being the wide range of self-organised activity that is led by, and accountable to, the people who live and work in geographically defined areas. Often this activity takes place under the radar of public awareness and as such, its contribution to both the social and the real economy is often underestimated.
