Join the Gaining Ground Network

Are you a crofter or smallholder who would like to offer social crofting opportunities, or do you just have an interest in social crofting? Please join our network.

Our network meetings have shown:

  • there is a desire for social crofting/smallholding to formalised in Scotland;
  • there is a wider interest in green care and its role within the community as part of an enterprise mix of agricultural businesses;
  • there are, already, existing providers and supporting organisations - a recognition that it is important to utilise their expertise and not displace them;
  • models of social care need to change to reflect the fact that people wish to remain in their community and be part of it choosing a model of care that promotes mental and physical well-being which is a particularly suitable mode for remote and rural areas.

Join the network to support this growing movement for change and social justice.
