Community Planning is based on the simple idea that if we all work more effectively together then public services will improve for those who use them.
Community Planning should start with the service providers, for example the Council, NHS and Police, engaging with local communities and service users to find out what their needs are and then jointly agree priorities.
The next stage is to jointly design local services to meet these identified priorities and ensure that they are delivered effectively.
Following an independent review of community planning in South Ayrshire in 2014, new priorities and governance structures were agreed, including the establishment of a Community Planning Executive, 3 new Strategic Delivery Partnership to deliver these priorities: Economy & Employment, Health and Wellbeing and Community Safety. A Shortlife Working Group on Prevention and Early Intervention has also been set up as part of the new arrangements.
The new structure for South Ayrshire Community Planning Partnership can be found here. The new governance arrangements are focused on the 6 new Locality Planning areas in South Ayrshire.
