People across Scotland are being invited to join a conversation about community decision-making to help make public services more locally focused.
The Democracy Matters conversation will identify new legal rights for communities which would place them at the heart of decision-making. The Democracy Matters conversation is a joint venture between the Scottish Government, COSLA and the community sector and will run over the next six months.
As part of the conversation people are being invited to consider a short set of questions on shaping local democracy. Community groups can also apply for grants of up to £300 to host their own events related to the project. To find out more about the grants, please visit Voluntary Action Fund’s website:https://www.voluntaryactionfund.org.uk/funding-and-support/democracy-matters-community-engagement-fund
