Hard to reach or easy to ignore - Promoting equality in community engagement – Evidence review
Hard to reach or easy to ignore - Promoting equality in community engagement – Evidence reviewUploaded by Lucy Janes, 30/04/18 16:33 This evidence review explores the intersection between community engagement and inequality. It examines evidence, from Scotland and the UK, on what is being done to overcome inequality in community engagement.
Equality and community engagement are central to core policy developments and frameworks that guide current public sector reform: i.e. Christie Commission on the Future Delivery of Public Services; Community Empowerment Act 2015; Fairer Scotland; Convention of Scottish Local Authorities’ Commission on Strengthening Local Democracy.
The evidence highlights the difficulties in pursuing a complex and critical action plan to overcome inequality in community engagement.
