community representation


Community Representation

Each project in Kirkintilloch’s Initiative has a community representative and a project champion who are responsible for helping to make the project a reality. They have worked closely with the community gaining their support and making sure projects meet the needs of local people.

The Reps and Champions will continue to be closely involved in Kirkintilloch’s Initiative. They will continue to listen to the community and will also monitor progress on the development of projects – helping to turn the dream into reality.

The community representatives also come together in the Community Steering Group which co-ordinates community input to Kirkintilloch’s Initiative. Three members of this group sit on the board of Kirkintilloch’s Initiative.
