Community Planning Partnership
The Orkney Partnership Board
Orkney Community Planning Partnership exists to ensure that community planning involves the councils and other public bodies work with local communities, businesses, charities and voluntary groups, to improve services for those who need them.
This is done through the work of the Orkney Partnership Board which has established three strategic delivery groups, all of which contain third sector members: the Strong Communities Group, (which VAO Chairs), the Living Well Group and the Vibrant Economy Group.
Voluntary Action Orkney and third sector staff attend the meetings for these Groups throughout the year, with the aim of co-ordinating action and resources, to improve the lives of local people and then addressed through the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan incorporated in the Orkney Community Plan 2019-2022.
