Our Aberdeenshire is your Aberdeenshire!
Community Planning is a way of working in which major providers of public and voluntary services in our area, work together with our communities to deliver better services.
Our standalone website - www.ouraberdeenshire.org.uk - provides a source of information for anyone interested in community planning. This includes the detail of the partners involved, the partnership structure and relevant documents, minutes of meetings and links to websites. It showcases community planning as a way of working and over time will highlight examples of best practice throughout Aberdeenshire.

Partnership working brings many benefits. Organisations gain shared understanding of local issues and they can work together to deliver solutions without duplication of effort. The inclusion of community partners means that better solutions can be reached and delivered in the way that best suits communities.
The partnership comprises twelve full partners: the Council, Police, Fire and Rescue, NHS Grampian, Scottish Enterprise, NESTRANS, Councils for Voluntary Service, Community Councils, Aberdeenshire Alcohol and Drug Partnership, ACSEF, Local Rural Partnerships and Skills Development Scotland with other organisations involved in the partnership through our theme forums.
The website is of interest to Aberdeenshire residents as it provides local area information and will detail good practice examples of community planning in action. We also aim to expand our information on how they can get involved in community planning or community groups locally.
The site will not duplicate information that currently exists on other relevant and partners websites but will provide links to other sites, including the council’s.
