There’s a serious policy disconnect within Scottish Government. The community sector has never before had so much attention from the policy spotlight, with communities assuming roles and responsibilities that have previously been the sole preserve of the public sector. Running in parallel (but in the opposite direction) is the steady disinvestment in what used to be called ‘community work’. The remnants of what once was a significant nationwide workforce are now left clinging to a few local authorities and voluntary organisations. Scottish Government is now trying to get a sense of who’s still out there and in particular, who’s doing what.
