Community Conversations

As Shetland moves through the Government Tiers, and as communities start to think about opening up buildings and activities, we want to provide a forum for communities to share any worries, learn from each other, and enable communities to explore what they can do themselves and what they want help with from the public sector.

We have planned a series of Community Conversations between 15 June and 24 August 2021.  Sessions are informal and low key.  They will be facilitated by your local Community Involvement and Development Officer and will be focused around the following 2 questions:

1. How are you feeling about the reopening of your community/activities/buildings?

2. What support do you need to feel confident about that?

If you want to take part in your local Community Conversation, please email your local Community Involvement and Development Officer, and details of how to join will be emailed to you prior to the session.  See below for details and how to book a place:
