Building capacity is at the heart of community development and community empowerment. When communities are well organised, inclusive, influential and cohesive they create a positive environment for people to enjoy a good quality of life.

PPHW is working in partnership with the Scottish Community Development Centre and Scottish Co-production Network to introduce health and care teams to community capacity building.
