Knowledge is Power will support community groups to carry out community-led action research on an issue that matters to them and to use the research to make change happen.

We'll be working with six groups from across Scotland, with support consisting of group training and tailored on-site support and advice to help you deliver a community-led action research project. There will also be opportunities to work together and share learning with other participating community projects.

We want to support community groups working with, and consisting of, people from marginalised and excluded communities. These could be people living in a neighbourhood experiencing poverty or people who face barriers, share an identity or equality protected characteristics, such as being disabled, LGBTQ or Black and Minority Ethnic (BME).

As this work progresses, the research evidence generated by the community organisations will be brought together through our website and used to help shape policy at a national level across Scotland.
