Edinburgh Tenants Federation uses a community development approach in our work with local tenants’ groups. This means we provide practical and development support, opportunities for people to connect, information and training to help people and their tenants’ groups influence the issues in their local communities.
We’re big on contributing to Community Learning and Development as a profession.
We recently led a workshop at the Community Development Journal Conference Why Community Development? Continuity and Innovation at Edinburgh University and had a session in the International Association of Community Development Conference Community is the Answer at Glasgow University in 2014.
Watch our Development Coordinator, Clare MacGillivray in this short film explain why its so important to connect the local to the global.
All our development staff are registered practitioners with the Community Learning and Development Standards Council for Scotland.
We are always on the look-out for links that will enhance our work, so if you feel your organisation could connect positively with us, please get in touch.
