News and Events

As you may be aware GDPR which came into effect in May 2018. Many of the principles are the same as the existing Data Protection Act, but there are a few new responsibilities community groups should probably know about! KDP is happy to continue to run some information sessions in 2019, and we are also happy to consider one-to-one support.  If this is of interest to your group or organisation please contact the KDP office at

In 2015 Parliament passed the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 to give new rights to community bodies and new duties to public sector authorities. Three years on we looked at Community Empowerment in Kincardine and Mearns, understand what truly empowered communities look like and further engage with the Act to ensure that our communities maximise the opportunities it should present. KDP held a day event in June 2018 for community groups to consider the wider subject of Community Empowerment and how it could align with the Act. A report detailing the findings of the event is available to download below or print copies are still available from the KDP office by emailing
