Participation requests

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 came into force on 1 April 2017. This Act enables community bodies to request to be involved in decisions and put forward their ideas on how services could be changed to improve outcomes for the community.

You can read about the Act on the Scottish Government’s Website and there is also a Scottish Government guidance document which gives advice on how to go about making a participation request.

How to make a participation request

To make a request, you must be making the request as part of an eligible community body. This means the body must have membership open to the community and whose work benefits the community.

To make a participation request please complete the participation request form and email it to the participation request officer.
