In September 2017, the Scottish Government launched the Making Places initiative to help communities positively and actively to contribute to the development of their places.
Communities can still specifically apply for grant funding to participate in and lead design events, such as workshops and charrettes. Applications are open until 13 October 2017. To read more about the Making Places Initiative and to apply for grant funding see: https://beta.gov.scot/publications/making-places-initiative-2017-2018-prospectus-form/
For communities who want help to deliver the ideas produced, A&DS will be developing a support programme of advice and guidance. If you require any further information, or would like to note interest in this specific type of support, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and mark your message “Community Delivery”.
For communities who want to build up their skills and confidence enabling them to have meaningful discussions about their place and set their priorities, a separate support programme is being developed. If you require any further information, or would like to note interest in this specific type of support, please contact: email@example.com and mark your message “Community Capacity Building”
We will be announcing full details of our support programme shortly. To be notified on the launch of this programme please sign up to our newsletter
