Building Community Wealth and Wellbeing Conference

Senscot, Social Firms Scotland and Scottish Community Alliance, will be holding a Conference on Monday and Tuesday 25th/26th November 2019 at the Westerwood Hotel.

This year’s theme is Community Wealth and Wellbeing – Community wealth building is a people-centred approach to local economic development. It reorganises local economies to be fairer. It stops wealth flowing out of our communities, towns and cities. Instead, it places control of this wealth into the hands of local people, communities, businesses and organisations.

The event will focus on opportunities and challenges for local social/community enterprises in responding to a number of Scottish Govt policy initiatives such as community empowerment, participatory budgeting, place-making, community wealth building etc.

Highlighting areas of good practice, sharing of information and debating how organisations can better engage and participate with these agendas.

Applications are being sought for this year’s Dragons Den part of the day. Applicants will pitch their idea and highlight its intended impact. Closing date for entries is Friday 15th Nov (5pm).  Follow this link for more info:
