The Civic Survey we carried out in 2012 showed that 67% of
groups felt it is important that SCT shares best
practice across the network. Civic groups also value
SCT's work in raising the profile of the movement
nationally, with 75% stating that this activity was
beneficial to their group.
The Trust has started to put together a series of case
studies, to help share best practice and knowledge across the
civic network and to raise awareness of the fantastic work being
done by our affiliated groups across Scotland.
The first two case studies are The Causey project in Edinburgh -
a project to transform a public space, and the Perth Civic Trust
Awards - a long running awards scheme designed to raise the profile
of the group and get people more interested in their surroundings.
The third case study, published in May 2014, looks at how the Trust
worked with affilaited local groups in Glasgow to establish the
Glasgow Civic Forum, which aims to strengthen the dialogue between
civic groups in the city and share best practice.
