My introduction to Scotland’s Community Councils began as a member of a Commission established by the Secretary of State for Scotland.  The Commission was established to recommend a concordat between the different levels of elected statutory bodies in Scotland and we met with Community Councils in every area of the country.  (This gave me a valuable perspective that has aided the way I approach my work as a Community Councillor.) I subsequently became a member of Corstorphine Community Council for the past 12 years serving first as Treasurer and then as Chairperson. I firmly believe that Community Council’s need to change and adapt to be relevant and I would welcome the opportunity to be an agent of that change in Edinburgh

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
