Along with Community Councillors from other parts of Scotland several representatives from Edinburgh Community Councils attended the event in the Centre for Carbon Innovation on 23rd April 2019.

On relecting the Strengthening Community Councils event, Andrew Paterson of Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) wonders if it’s time to rebalance how we think of, and support, community councils. He suggested:

“It’s good to see a balanced view of community councils for a change”

But he thinks there was a clear message from more than one person attending the event The report , presentation slides and notes from the meeting are linked  below

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
