From the Community-led climate action climate action section of a recent Scottish Government policy document

Community climate action hubs 

We are building a network of regional community climate action hubs to provide a more strategic regional approach to climate change action.  This network of regional hubs will be spread across Scotland - two pathfinder hubs, one in the North Highlands led by Thurso Community Development Trust and one in the North East led by the NESCAN Hub (North East Scotland Climate Action Network), were launched in September 2021. 
.   .   .   .
The hubs will provide support in their local areas, helping groups to take advantage of community funding opportunities, and reducing the administrative burden on projects.  The hubs will also facilitate better networking, ensuring a joined-up approach is being taken to tackling climate change at a regional level.
