We have successful, inclusive and resilient communities with the confidence, capability and capacity to tackle the things that matter to them

A wide range of partners are involved in strengthening the role of our communities in the delivery and design of services.

Action being progressed against this priority outcome includes:

  • Supporting volunteers to contribute to their communities
  • Ensuring third sector organisations are better connected and able to influence and contribute to public policy
  • Working with communities to deliver “Community Action Plans”
  • Supporting young people to achieve volunteer accreditation
  • Provision of support and training opportunities to community groups and organisations
  • Supporting our Community Councils
  • Working to ensure that all sectors of our community have a voice and an opportunity to participate
  • Working to ensure communities are more engaged in local decision making
