Community planning helps local public services to work together and with local communities to plan and deliver better services that make a real difference to people’s lives. It is based on the idea that public bodies can get better results locally by working together and with our communities so that public services improve for the people who use them. The Lochaber Community Partnership is one of ten local partnerships which have been established across Highland to ensure that community planning can be delivered successfully at a local level. We promise to actively listen to the community, to identify the local challenges as expressed by them and commit to taking action that will reduce disadvantage and inequality. We will use our combined resources creatively to produce solutions that are meaningful and valued by the community we serve.
The Lochaber Community Partnership is made up of 5 core agencies. These agencies are:-
Promoting equality, meeting diverse needs of people and communities
Building resilient places and communities
Supporting wellbeing and health.
Lochaber Community Partnership is set up to provide a forum within the local area where partner agencies and the community can come together to plan and take forward the needs of the local community.
Lochaber Community Planning Partnership have been tasked with developing Locality Plans for 3 areas.
Fort William (upper) including Claggan
These areas have been identified as areas highest on the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation within Lochaber. The development of Children’s Plans is currently being undertaken with Police Scotland leading in developing the plan. The partnership is also looking to develop an Adults Plan for Lochaber (NHS).
