Want to get involved?

To support the work of the Area Partnerships, individuals from local organisations (primarily, but not exclusively Community Councils) are invited to join their Area Partnership to allow their local knowledge and experience to influence the discussions and decisions that are made at Area Partnerships. Community members also work in partnership with the elected members to set the agenda for Area Partnerships. Members of the public can attend Area Partnerships to observe.

To assist the Area Partnerships in their role they are each allocated an Area Budget. Information can be found here.
