Community Action Plans (CAPs) are a tool for communities to identify their priority issues and generate the resources and commitment to address them. To negotiate with public organisations where their input is required, it is necessary that CAPs can demonstrate that they have been developed inclusively and using robust evidence. In Aberdeenshire, it has been agreed that to be recognised by Aberdeenshire Community Planning Partnership (ACPP) and receive funding from the Aberdeenshire Rural Partnership Federation, a CAP will have received input and, if appropriate, support from the local Rural Area Partnership.
