Local Rural Partnerships are voluntary groupings who work with and promote the common issues affecting the local communities and work to empower, support and help develop community groups. Rural Partnerships are independent organisations, created and managed by community representatives. The six Rural Partnerships in Aberdeenshire work together as the Federation of Rural Partnerships and contribute to all levels of the Aberdeenshire Community Planning Partnership.

Rural Partnerships can help communities to;

  • Develop prioritised action plans (Community Action Plans)
  • Support and encourage community led projects, particularly those with economic development outcomes
  • Facilitate engagement and involvement between communities and statutory agencies
  • Build community capacity for groups and individuals involved in projects, mentoring and accessing funding
