Perth & Kinross Offer - Equalities Conversations

Closed 30 Apr 2020

Opened 24 Feb 2020

Results expected 31 Jul 2020

Feedback expected 31 Jul 2020


This consultation comprises of a series of conversations with equality-protected groups in Perth and Kinross.

Touching on a range of topics from public transport and feeling safe to social contact and natural space, we want to:

  • hear about people’s experiences
  • understand what’s important to people
  • think about ways we can work together to make Perth and Kinross better for everyone. 

Why We Are Consulting

These conversations take place in the context of the Perth & Kinross Offer which is designed to transform the way the Council works with communities, citizens, partners and businesses so that everyone in Perth and Kinross can live life well.

In this context, it is important that everyone’s voice can be heard and that people have the opportunity to be involved in developing new ways of working together on issues that are important to them.

The conversations will be structured using the Place Standard tool. This allows discussion of people’s experiences of both social and physical aspects of Perth and Kinross. It encourages us to recognise what is good, as well as where improvements could be made. The process also helps to identify priorities and to discuss possible actions we could take together.

These conversations are part of a process, not the end of a process. Following the conversations, it will be important to think about what opportunities there might be for us to develop and build on the discussions.

The Equalities Team and the Perth & Kinross Offer Team will be working together to carry out this process. Team members will contact individuals and groups to take part and will arrange to have the conversations at a time and place convenient to the participants.
