Health Networks in the West Locality
The Public Health Team working within Aberdeen Health and Social Care Partnership are in the process of forming a series of health networks for each locality across Aberdeen City. All partners with a role in health and wellbeing are being invited to become involved. Each network will focus on improving health and wellbeing locally. The West Locality is still looking for Health Network recruits. Would you be able to spare a couple of hours 3-4 times a year to explore this exciting new network within your community? If you are interested please get in touch with email@example.com or 01224 846 731
Aberdeenshire Council, in partnership with the Aberdeenshire Community Planning Partnership and Aberdeenshire Health & Social Care Partnership, would like to find out how they can involve the community in decisions and services. They are asking for help to shape the way they work together to create a vision for the future which continues to strengthen involvement in local decisions-making. At the moment they are looking for information you feel should be included in a new strategy which will focus on how they work together. Views are being sought from community groups, third sector organisations, and employees from across Aberdeenshire.
Information you share with them will help them prepare a draft version of the strategy which will be shared widely later in the year. They will then hold further talks with groups/organisations about the feedback received before going through the council’s formal approval process. Find the Aberdeenshire CPP community engagement survey here.
Fife’s Third Sector Strategy Group are seeking views on their draft strategic approach to the community and voluntary sector’s role in tackling inequality and promoting fairness.
