The Orkney Community Planning Partnership is currently undergoing a major restructuring. Some of the information on this site may therefore be out of date. We apologise for any inconvenience and are working hard to update it.

Community Planning in Orkney
Welcome to our website. Here you will find information about community planning in Orkney. We welcome your views on any community planning issue.
Community planning is about ensuring that organisations work together, and with communities, to improve the quality of people’s lives through more effective delivery of services. Here in Orkney we are very good at working together, as there is a sense of community which succeeds in making things happen.
The mission of the Partnership is to ensure that local organisations work together and with communities to improve the quality of people's lives, provide better services, and create a shared vision for the future to which we can all subscribe.
In 2015 the Orkney Community Planning Partnership made the decision to concentrate on the areas most in need of intervention and three priorities for action were selected. These priorities address challenges which no single agency can solve on its own. You can find out more about this in our new plan.
