Community Development Alliance Scotland
Community Development Alliance Scotland (CDAS) is a member organisation that brings together networks and organisations in Scotland and beyond to promote policy and practice that supports community development.
CDAS is fully committed to partnership working and embracing collaborative practice and have played an integral role shaping community development policy and practice in Scotland and beyond.
CDAS has a significant role in awareness raising, highlighting opportunities and in the planning and delivery of national and international conferences and membership engagement events.
CDAS has been described as a ‘super anchor’ organisation, born of our role in facilitating the exchange of ideas and insights between every sector that interacts with communities – environmental, culture, learning, health, housing, social care support, welfare, regeneration, equalities and many more – thereby facilitating collaboration based on a stronger understanding of the contribution each can make to community development and the communities of Scotland.
All members share the fundamental belief that understanding and working with communities is at the core of good, relevant practice, and share the core values and principles of:
- Climate justice
- Social justice
- Human rights
- Democratic participation
- Inclusion, equality and anti-discrimination
- Collective action
- Working and learning together.
