CLDSC Report on Local Authority Community Learning and Development Budget Allocation 2023/24 

In April 2023 the Community Learning and Development (CLD) Standards Council wrote to all thirty-two Local Authorities seeking financial information on the resources allocated to support the implementation of statutory CLD Strategic Plans. This report is intended to present, for the first time, a data informed overview of CLD Local Authority budgets in Scotland. Whilst there are caveats and limitations to the scope of this exercise, nonetheless the findings will inform discussions with Scottish Ministers in the development of CLD policy and support Local Authority planning and decision making for CLD.
