Community Links Scotland

2017 - present

In the preparation of a community plan for Almond Housing Association CLS undertook an extensive and varied consultations with the community and other stakeholders. As part of the consultation CLS spoke with over 230 tenants through door to door surveying, a mail- out survey for more remote tenants, and utilised online programmes to carry out an electronic survey publicised through social media.

Supporting this community consultation we undertook a tenant focus group and a staff workshop making use of the Place Standard tool to evaluate stakeholders’ perceptions of the area. We successfully engaged with local young people to gain a better understanding of the needs of the whole community, and worked with community groups to identify their unique needs in terms of the facilities and services available locally.
