  • Changing the Channel: Communities Channel Scotland and the Social Impact Pledge relaunch today

    Created: 15/09/2021

    The redeveloped Communities Channel Scotland website and Social Impact Pledge have been launched today, making them even more helpful to community groups across Scotland in their amazing work with their communities.

    Community groups, and anyone who works with them, are invited to visit the website and take advantage of its updated features, such as…

    • Straightforward guides to key developments and policy affecting community groups, including climate change, COVID-19 and what’s currently happening around human rights in Scotland.
    • Easily searchable collections of resources, including tools, ideas for funding and relevant support organisations, to help you carry out your activities and achieve your aims.
    • Inspiring examples of community groups in action, covering everything from emergency responses to COVID-19 to creative ways of engaging with people.
    • The Social Impact Pledge, which asks public bodies to commit to making changes to what they do that have a direct benefit for communities and community groups.
    • All the latest news from, and relevant to, community groups in Scotland.

    To mark the relaunch, Minister for Public Finance, Planning and Community Wealth, Tom Arthur MSP, has stated his hope that Communities Channel Scotland and the Social Impact Pledge continue to be key online resources for community groups. View the Minister’s statement here
