ACE Guide to Achieving Community Empowerment

The Achieving Community Empowerment  (ACE) Process is intended to help community groups and organisations become more confident, better organised and more effective in achieving their aims.  This guide has been developed as part of the ACE programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund and delivered by the Scottish Community Development Centre.  It guides community groups, and those who work with them, through a critical review of their roles, relationships and ambitions so that they can be as effective as possible in achieving their aims and improving their communities. This guide will be helpful for community workers and others who want to encourage stronger and more active communities.
