Link Up: Transforming Relationships

Link Up: Transforming Relationships

Annual Publication 2019-2020

Link Up is Inspiring Scotland’s community development and wellbeing programme.  It started in 2011 and sits at the heart of our ambition for a Scotland without poverty and disadvantage. It is among the largest and longest-running programmes of its kind in Scotland. Link Up brings people together to create activities and events by and for the community. Through this, we enable people to reinvent themselves from passive recipients of external help into active change makers and actors in their own life and community.

This new report for 2020 places the work of Link Up, and the special contributions the Link Up teams make to communities across Scotland, front and centre of a narrative whose time has come. People, relationships, and kindness are where the changes are being made – and with people and in communities where the need is greatest. Turning vulnerability into confidence is the special power of Link Up. And using the confidence that exists in our communities to enrich and shape potential in others.
