Abstract
First paragraph: This project aimed to develop understanding of the current enactment of community resilience in Scotland through gathering multi-generational, multi-event scenario perspectives and combining these with insight from communities, the voluntary sector and statutory organisations. This was explored through collaborative discussion, knowledge sharing and key interviews. Through building a narrative of these experiences we contribute to a greater understanding of community resilience and form the foundations for sustainable, positive changes in people’s lives and communities.
