Scottish Communities Alliance

I attended the Scottish Communities Alliance conference in the Scottish Parliament buildings last month.  This was a thought provoking and at times inspiring event.

Below are links to a record of the proceedings.  I chaired the public services session on the emporium of dangerous ideas. It is worth listening to the story of Atlantic Leisure – yes – the third sector can out perform the Council.

I made an intervention in the Q&A session in the afternoon on procurement and the Community benefits clause.
