SURF and the Scottish Government team up each year to recognise and promote the work of successful projects that are independently judged to be demonstrating a significant impact in addressing social and economic challenges in Scottish communities. The annual SURF Awards for Best Practice in Community Regeneration, now in its 17th year, concludes with a celebratory dinner event.
The 2015 SURF Awards process will highlight winning initiatives drawn from 16 shortlisted projects across five diverse categories: Scotland’s Most Improved Town, Large Scale Infrastructure, Employability, Creative Regeneration, and Community Led Regeneration.
At the event, the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Social Justice, Communities & Pensioners’ Rights, Alex Neil MSP, will announce the category winners, as selected by a panel of 22 regeneration experts.
The convivial Presentation Dinner is a ‘must-attend’ event in the Scottish regeneration calendar, and a unique opportunity to join regeneration friends and colleagues from across public, private and third sectors to learn more about the latest examples of best practice and the quality and diversity of ongoing regeneration projects throughout Scotland.
The event takes place on the evening of Thursday 10 December (6:30pm to late) in the Radisson Blu Hotel in central Glasgow.
