Turriff & District Making It Real Partnership

What is the Making It Real Partnership?

Partnership working brings many benefits.  Organisations gain shared understanding of local issues and they can work together to deliver solutions without duplication of effort.  The inclusion of community partners means that better solutions can be reached and delivered in the way that best suits communities.

Get Involved – Make It Real Forums

Make It Real Forums are held in Formartine on a regular basis. Details of upcoming events or initiatives by the Turriff & District Making It Real Group will be posted on our news and events feed and advertised locally.  If you want to get involved or would like to nominate a local initiative to take to the Group, contact the Community Planning Officer debra.campbell@aberdeenshire.gov.uk
