As the national umbrella organisation for over 100 civic and
amenity groups the Scottish Civic Trust recognises the immensely
important role that these groups play in the shaping of
Scotland's communities and places.
Many of you will recall completing our civic survey last summer.
The Trust received 32 responses out of 102 affiliated groups. the
findings of the survey will shape and guide the activities of SCT
and provide the evidence base for our strategy to deliver suitable
support for civic groups. The full
results are now available (you will need Microsoft Excel
to open the document), along with a summary document highlighting
some of the key findings focusing on:
- The make up of the civic movement in Scotland
- The civic movement's aspirations and priorities for the
- SCT's performance and ambitions for the future.
These findings will shape and guide the future activities of the
SCT and will provide the evidence base for our strategy to deliver
suitable support to civic groups. The findings will also allow us
to pose questions to individual civic groups and cluster groupings
about how we can all respond to the challenges faced by the
This survey gave us a snapshot of the key issues and challenges
facing the civic movement in Scotland, and as such, it's intended
to help us set our own priorities for action. We also hope it gave
groups the opportunity to ask some questions about themselves, and
we continue to meet with civic groups on a one-to-one basis to
identify local issues and help strengthen their influence.
