The Community Learning and Development (Scotland) Regulations 2013 place a statutory requirement on local authorities to publish a plan every three years. 

Community Learning and Development (CLD) plays a central part in ensuring individuals, families and communities across West Dunbartonshire reach their potential through lifelong learning, mutual self-help and community organisation - and that the available support and opportunities are community-led and built around people's aspirations.

This is the third plan, covering the period 2021 – 2024. The Plan has been developed on the basis of widespread consultation and analysis of the national and local policy environment. It also builds on the lessons learned from the West Dunbartonshire 2018 – 2021 Community Learning and Development Plan and aims to support efforts to make West Dunbartonshire a good place, to live, learn, work and explore.
