CSPP Discussion Forum: How Can Towns Contribute More Effectively Towards the Development of a Fairer Scotland?

You can read a report from our towns discussion here


Monday, 19th October 2015, 10 am – 12 noon, Falkirk Business Hub 

We invite our members to contribute to our discussion forum in support of a major piece of work to establish how towns can contribute more effectively towards the development of a fairer Scotland. The session will be held with Scotland’s Towns Partnership and is supported by the Voluntary Action Fund

Led by CSPP Chair, Professor Richard Kerley, the forum’s purpose is to gather insight and expertise in the identification of key factors and considerations for the alignment of town development with social justice goals.   The forum will encourage a candid and inclusive discussion on the role of Scotland's towns in this agenda, seeking to address key areas of related legislation including living wage, community empowerment and land reform. 

Booking and attendance: This event is free to attend. However, as places are strictly limited, please reserve your place by contacting Elaine Bone, [email protected], Tel/Text 07801 354591.


Scotland’s policy think tank, The Centre for Scottish Public Policy (CSPP), founder of the ‘go to’ body for towns, Scotland’s Towns Partnership (STP), has been appointed by STP to host ‘the National Think Tank on Towns’. Its focus is to primarily explore how towns should ensure they deliver on social justice and a fairer, more inclusive society.



Next steps

Feedback from the forum will be reported to the Voluntary Action Fund who are funding the forum. Feedback will also make a key contribution to the extensive research being undertaken for the project. Early thoughts will premiere at a future-towns session at STP’s national conference for Scotland’s towns on 18th November in Falkirk.
