Led by CSPP Chair, Professor Richard Kerley, the forum’s purpose is to gather insight and expertise in the identification of key factors and considerations for the alignment of town development with social justice goals. The forum will encourage a candid and inclusive discussion on the role of Scotland's towns in this agenda, seeking to address key areas of related legislation including living wage, community empowerment and land reform.

Scotland’s policy think tank, The Centre for Scottish Public Policy (CSPP), founder of the ‘go to’ body for towns, Scotland’s Towns Partnership (STP), has been appointed by STP to host ‘the National Think Tank on Towns’. Its focus is to primarily explore how towns should ensure they deliver on social justice and a fairer, more inclusive society.
Feedback from the forum will be reported to the Voluntary Action Fund. Feedback will also make a key contribution to the extensive research being undertaken for the project. Early thoughts will premiere at a future-towns session at STP’s national conference for Scotland’s towns on 18th November in Falkirk.
