Action Partnerships

In Perth and Kinross the five Community Planning Partnership localities are:

  • Perth City
  • Kinross-shire, Almond and Earn
  • Strathearn and Strathallan
  • Highland and Strathtay
  • Eastern Perthshire

These localities each have an Action Partnership made up of elected members, communities, and public services.

Through the Action Partnerships the Community Planning Partnership will identify areas where people experience higher levels of inequality. These areas will be supported through locality action plans to improve outcomes for the people who live there. The minutes of each Action Partnership can be found here:

Community Engagement

As part of the process of setting up Action Partnerships in Perth and Kinross, the Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC) was commissioned to host engagement meetings.  These events took place during May 2016.  The icon full report [1Mb] provides details of the events.

The Community Engagement events advised that the Action Partnership should:

  • Be action-focused
  • Be well resourced
  • Avoid duplication of existing community work/groups
  • Ensure equity
  • Be sustainable

Participatory Budgeting

The Action Partnerships have budgets available to tackle inequalities locally. They will be using "Participatory Budgeting" to get citizens involved in deciding how this money is used. The documents below are previous examples of Participatory Budgeting, so that anyone interested can find out more about the process.
