Partners and community plan
Community planning is about councils and other public bodies like the police, the fire and rescue service and the NHS working with local communities, businesses, charities and voluntary groups. Together they plan and deliver better services to improve the lives of local people.

The Edinburgh Partnership's Community Plan
Community planning partnerships have to produce a three year community plan for the Scottish Government. This shows how they will tackle some of the big social, economic and environmental issues in their area. They do this by looking at local information and listening to what communities and partnerships say about services.
You can download the Community Plan below and see the partnership’s vision for a fairer and better off Edinburgh where there are more jobs, less crime and a better quality of life for everyone.
The Prevention Strategic Plan complements the Community Plan and should be read alongside it. You can download it from the community plan documents below.
Neighbourhood Partnerships make local plans which support the community plan. You can find out more about these on the Neighbourhood Partnership website.
How we keep track
Every six months in June and December we will report on what we are doing and achieving. You can download the latest performance report from the community plan documents below.
The partnership family
The partnership has a board and several other types of partnership called strategic, advisory groups and neighbourhood partnerships. They make up the family of partnerships and they deliver the community plan. To see who does what you can download the arrangements paper below. You can also download the board's papers for the last year, below.
