Our Question of the Month for January 2024 related to the recent news that the Scottish Government has proposed a 50% cut in grant funding to the SCSN.

We have been consulting with partners and stakeholders around what impact this may have on their work – and on our ability to provide support to drive forward community safety priorities in Scotland.

  • 64.2% said Yes
  • 35.8% said No
  • 0% said Not Sure
