This is a new fixed term post which will help Go Beyond, Capital City Partnership and the Edinburgh and South East City Region Deal area establish what Community Wealth Building (CWB) and the 5 pillars mean to them and importantly show how community organisations (such as charities & social enterprises) can play their part in developing CWB in the South West locality of Edinburgh.
