The Strengthening Communities Conference 2017 brought together people who are at the heart of community led development in Scotland. It was held at the Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort on 21 and 22 September.
Around 250 volunteers, communities groups, social enterprises, development officers, support agencies and policy staff attended the event and heard from several impressive speakers and took part in workshops over the two-day event.

The format of the conference was a mix of informative presentations covering the policy position, best practice and looking to the future, augmented with ample networking opportunities. In addition there was also a ‘market place’ for exhibiting and inspiring collaboration, innovation and adoption of ideas, all in the pursuit of strengthening communities.
