Community Empowerment

In 2015, a new Act came into force called the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act which provides a new vision for community planning which is ambitious and challenging. Under the new Act, community planning became a statutory requirement with a specific duty being placed on five key partners to own and lead community planning and ensure that it works effectively. These five key partners are local authorities, NHS board, Scottish Enterprise, Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service. These partners will play a key role in shared leadership, governance and accountability.
