Getting in on the Act workshop: January 2019

7th January 2019

Do you want to learn more about how you can make use of the Community Empowerment Act? A free workshop from the Community Health Exchange (CHEX) is being held in Edinburgh.

Delivered in partnership with local organisations, the workshop will provide an opportunity for local communities to find out what the Community Empowerment Act contains and how to make use of it.

As well as providing a general overview, the workshop will introduce you to:

  • Using participation requests to start a conversation with public bodies about how to improve services.
  • Asset transfer requests in relation to land and buildings in your community that you would like to make better use of.
  • Having your voice heard in community planning.


The Edinburgh workshop, in partnership with Edinburgh Community Health Forum, will be held on Thursday 31st January from 9:30am until 12:30pm at Deaf Action, 49 Albany Street, Edinburgh EH1 3QY.
