Neighbourhood Partnerships

Get involved in your Neighbourhood Partnership

Your local Neighbourhood Partnership (NP) includes Community Councils, Health, Police, Fire and voluntary sector representatives working with the Council and local elected members. Edinburgh has 12 NPs, separated geographically, and you can find yours using the online postcode search on the Neighbourhood Partnership website.

Getting involved with your Neighbourhood Partnership

As Advisory Committees of the Council, NPs allow you to influence service design and delivery. They take forward the Neighbourhood Environmental Programme for local improvements and also administer the Community Grants Fund, which supports local activity.

You are the local experts. To ensure that NPs make the right decisions, we want you to get involved, in a way that suits you.  You can come along to a local NP meeting or Community Council meeting and speak to the members, visit your local neighbourhood office, drop us an email or tweet. Find out more on the NP website.

Understanding need 

Each of the 12 Neighbourhood Partnerships (NPs) are working together to make your area a better place to live. By telling your NP what’s important to you, they can shape the local community plans to your needs and identify the local priorities.

We know that all of the NPs are different and this is reflected in the plans. To ensure that we are making a difference across the City, all NP priorities contribute to city wide outcomes in the City Community Plan (SOA4) 2013-16.  

Performance reporting

NPs monitor the performance of outcome delivery using action plans and indicators. For further information on NP performance please get in touch with us.
