2021 marks 23 years of the SURF Awards, showcasing, promoting and sharing the learning from best practice examples of ‘what works’ within Scotland’s places. Each year, the SURF Awards celebrates some of the most impressive outcomes in tackling physical, social and economic decline in communities throughout the country.
This publication profiles the 15 projects shortlisted in the 2021 SURF Awards. Projects range in scale, activity and geography, from smaller scale community hubs in Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy, to arts programmes in Glasgow and Greenock and larger scale investments in Aberdeenshire. We hope all 15 will inspire those working in regeneration projects throughout Scotland, and provide opportunities for learning.
