Scottish local election manifesto 2017 – draft for consultation – this consultation is open to any Scotland-based social enterprise

On Thursday 4 May voters will go to the polls for Scotland’s local authority elections.

Social Enterprise Scotland always consults Scotland’s social enterprises on our policies and produces a policy manifesto for each election.

The final version manifesto will be sent out to all election candidates and political parties, as well as to local authority officers and local and national government bodies – and we’ll follow this up after the election too.

Please download the draft manifesto above and give your feedback/comments/suggestions to: duncan.thorp@socialenterprise.scot

The deadline for feedback is 5pm Monday 3 April, please do forward to any Scotland-based social enterprise.

Important note:

The manifesto policies should be broad enough to apply to most or many social enterprises and not be sector specific (e.g. the SFHA produces policies for social housing).

The final version manifesto will remain a short, sharp document and easy to read and understand, so please keep any ideas concise.

The manifesto will be an A4 double sided PDF file and we’ll encourage everyone to share the final version when published.
