Supporting Communities is a programme of support for community organisations delivered by Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC). The purpose of the programme is to help community organisations to be in a stronger position to achieve their aims and work with others in the community.
This year support is offered to ‘community anchor organisations’, which are organisations with a leading or developmental role in their community. Community development trusts, community-led housing associations, community-led health organisations and community networks can all be considered as community anchor organisations. Community anchor organisations have valuable experience of providing local services, organising community development activities and advocating for community interests. They can also meet diverse local needs and improve democratic participation.
