Aberdeenshire Council – Al Amal Project – a Syrian led constituted community group

Al-Amal Project, constituted in October 2016 and the first committee began building community and organisational links and capacities. In the first 12 months, the chairperson grew in stature, leadership abilities and language ability and became a figurehead for the project rather than a collective member. A gulf developed between the growth and learning of the committee members so in preparation for their AGM, they spent a great deal of time looking at skills and learning.
