Orkney's community planning partnership
Community planning is about public service providers working together, and with communities to improve the quality of people's lives.
Members of Orkney's community planning partnership – known as The Orkney Partnership – want everybody in Orkney to have an equal opportunity to share in Orkney's success, and we will stay focused on our vision until this has been achieved, in accordance with our shared mission:
Working together for a better Orkney
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought challenges to Orkney's economy and community that need urgent attention, and which no single agency can solve on its own.
In 2021 The Orkney Partnership reviewed its priorities and engaged in a public consultation to seek comments. New priorities were proposed to reflect this situation, with overwhelmingly supportive responses from a public consultation. The following three priorities for action for the immediate future were agreed:
Delivery groups have been established to work on these priorities, along with two short life working groups: the Child Poverty Task Force, and the Economic Recovery Steering Group which formulated the ASPIRE Orkney Strategy.
