SCF The Federation

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

The SCF is now legally recognised as the Scottish Crofting Federation, a change agreed by its members at the 2009 AGM and celebrated at a reception in Inverness on 18th November. Neil MacLeod, chair of the SCF, set the background to the name change, a move brought about by the call to use a name that reflected the structure and mandate of the organisation more accurately. He pointed out that a federation is a number of independent bodies that come together under a common cause and central administration “SCF areas have their own constitutions and need to be able to reflect their own circumstances whilst coming together under the common cause of fighting to safeguard and promote the rights, livelihoods and culture of crofters and their communities."
