THE LOCAL GOVERNANCE REVIEW What does this mean in the context of Safer Communities?


In December 2017, the Scottish Government and COSLA jointly launched a Local Governance Review, which aims to make sure local communities have more say about how public services in their area are run. The review will consider how powers, responsibilities and resources are shared across national and local spheres of government, and with communities.

SCSN Learning Report

On 30th October 2018 we hosted the third event in our Masterclass series, this time on The Local Governance (LG) Review. It was aimed at community safety partners, and anyone with an interest in finding out more about the Local Governance review and increasing participation and decision-making of communities; particularly within the context of safer communities and justice work.

This session emerged out of conversations at SCSN’s regional meetings for Community Safety lead officers about the Local Governance Review and the opportunities for increased citizen participation and decision-making within partnerships.

In keeping with our recent practice, we have produced a full learning report on the day, which you can read here.
