Community Learning and Development

What we offer

In Perth and Kinross, Community Learning and Development (CLD) helps people build the skills, confidence, networks and resources they need to make positive changes in their own lives, their families' lives, and in their communities.

CLD is an informal and friendly way of learning within your community.  It involves people in learning, personal development and active citizenship with a focus on bringing about change in their lives and communities.  Community Learning and Development is:

  • Community development (building the capacity of communities to meet their own needs)
  • Youth work, family learning and working with children, young people and families
  • Community-based adult learning, including adult literacies and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
  • Volunteer development
