We are the first Community Wealth Building Council in Scotland.
Community Wealth Building means more local employment and a larger and more diverse business base, ensuring that wealth is locally owned and benefits local people. It is about how we work as an organisation and with partners; from the goods that we buy, the people that we employ, the assets we own and the powers that we have that can bring about change to maximise local economic opportunities.
