Our People, Our Place

Our People, Our Place

From 19-23 February 2018, the Council and partners including NHS Ayrshire & Arran, South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue and the voluntary sector are coming together to deliver local services right in the heart of the local community in north Ayr – making it easier than ever for people to access the services they need.

Our People, Our Place will see the partners using Newton Primary and Ayr Academy as local community hubs where a wide range of drop-in services, as well as targeted support, will be available to families and individuals.

Services will be available to everyone living in the area – not just those with children in the schools.

Drop-in services including benefits support, employability and skills, health and wellbeing, housing support, mental health support for young people, and social work will be available at the schools at various times throughout the week.

The week will finish off with a marketplace on the Friday afternoon where all the partners and services will be available – including private one-to-one discussions – alongside a free community café.

People living in north Ayr can drop-in to the two schools and access services at the following times:
