Jackie WeaverZoom icon and viral sensation Jackie Weaver joined the most recent online meeting of the Community Council Liaison Officer’s (CCLO) Network organised by the Improvement Service.

Jackie answered questions from CCLOs across Scotland regarding the similarities and differences between the work of community councils in Scotland and Town and Parish Councils in England, as well as offering advice on how to effectively manage online meetings! Community participation in local government is a subject that Jackie is obviously very knowledgeable about, and she has already agreed to attend future IS events.

As a result of Jackie attending the CCLO network event, individual CCLOs have also invited her to engage with community councillors in their local areas. You can find out more about the CCLO Network in this case study.
