List of Actions, Community Empowerment
Last week, at the DTA(UK) Annual Conference, Communities Minister Hazel Blears announced a package of measures designed to take forward community empowerment in England in advance of legislation to be passed later this year.
LPL has recently joined COSLA’s Community Empowerment Task Group which has set itself the target of launching Scotland’s Community Empowerment Action Plan in the Spring of next year.
LPL has already submitted a list of actions which it thinks are necessary if community empowerment is to become meaningful. See http://www.localpeopleleading.co.uk/downloads/actions_to_empower_communities.doc
