Community Partnerships Project (05/01/2011)
The Community Partnerships Project is a groundbreaking initiative to give a voice to people typically under-represented in political life.
The Scottish Parliament is seeking applications from local community-based groups from across Scotland for the third stage of the Community Partnerships Project.
The project, developed by the Parliament’s Education and Community Partnerships Team, works with disability rights organisations, difficult-to-reach young people, and people from ethnic minorities to help them get involved with and influence the activities of the Parliament.
The aim of the project is to build confidence on the part of external organisations by:
- Strengthening their understanding and awareness of the Parliament, its role and its processes
- Enhancing their ability to take positive action through parliamentary processes.
- Facilitating meaningful engagement by each partner organisation in the parliamentary process
The Third Community Partnerships Project (CPP3)
The third stage of the Scottish Parliament’s Community Partnerships Project (CPP3) will run from 2011-2012.
For the third stage, FIVE local community-based groups will be selected to participate. We welcome applications from across Scotland from:
- voluntary and charity sector organisations
- social enterprises
- community groups.
Applicant groups should have a strong local or regional focus, and should be confident of benefitting from bringing their local issues to the attention of the Scottish Parliament and their MSPs. Completed applications should be returned to the Parliament before 17th January 2011.
