Impact Funding Partners - Democracy Matters Community Engagement Fund


The Democracy Matters Community Engagement Fund aims to develop the thinking around how a vibrant, equal system of local democracy, where people understand their rights and actively participate in civic life, can be made to work in practice.

The Fund will:

  • Support organisations and groups to host conversations and gather the views of people across Scotland on how we can create a system of inclusive local democracy;
  • Reach out to all communities across Scotland no matter how small, large or what their geographical influences are;
  • Reach out to marginalised individuals and communities whose voices are not heard.

You can host your conversation at anytime, but it should be no later than 14 February 2024.
