RECOGNISE THAT NOT ALL COMMUNITIES EQUATE TO GEOGRAPHICAL NEIGHBOURHOODS, AND THAT LOCALISM CAN THEREFORE DISCRIMINATE AGAINST MINORITY COMMUNITIES; AND PROMOTE MEASURES THAT FOSTER SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITIES THROUGH A COMBINATION OF NATIONAL AND LOCAL NETWORKS AND INITIATIVES.

 
 

In many parts of the country, principally rural, the total minority population is a fraction of one per cent, and diverse distinct minorities are barely detectable. Additionally, there are many reasons why the census underestimates the size of minorities in a region. “Localism” therefore cannot meet the religious, cultural and educational needs of these communities, which need to be supported through national organisations and networks that connect them with other community members in Scotland.
