We celebrated the work of our  Locality Partnerships  almost one year on from their launch at our conference on 24 August. Our keynote speaker was the Scottish Government’s Minister for Local Government and Housing, Kevin Stewart MSP. We also heard from Jim McCormick of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation about how we can tackle poverty at a local level. Community representatives spoke about their local priorities, and community groups shared different ways of tackling issues.
