East Ayrshire Council has a new service called ‘Vibrant Communities’. In this short video some of the team talk about how they are shifting from asking 'How do I fix this'? to 'How do we empower these people to be able to find the solutions? How do I help them to fix this for themselves?'.
The video was filmed in August 2013 as part of the Skilled Workers, Skilled Citizens workstream of the Scottish Leaders Forum, which aims to share learning by pioneers in community asset based workforce development from across all of Scotland’s public services. Watch this space – more to come!
Filmed in August 2013 in Kilmarnock by Nick Wilding with Mairi-Anne Macdonald (SSSC)
This film captures some of the presentations and exchanges at the third meeting of the 'Skilled Workers, Skilled Citizens' initiative in Glasgow in June 2013. People from Police Scotland and Threshold (Crossreach) introduce how these organisations are enabling staff and citizens to 'co-produce' services to powerful effect.
