Ilustration showing lots of people in a parkA new web portal signposting the support available for Community Planning Partnerships has been launched.


Community Planning is the process by which public services in a local area are planned and provided. A number of public sector organisations are statutory partners in Community Planning (local authority, health board, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Police Scotland, enterprise agency and regional transport partnership). Many Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) also involve other public, voluntary, community and private sector organisations.


Developed by the Improvement Service, the Community Planning in Scotland portal brings together information about the support available from national improvement agencies (Improvement Service, Education Scotland, NHS Health Scotland and NHS National Services Scotland) and national programmes such as Workforce Scotland.


All support and resources are updated regularly and are organised by theme and organisation. The portal includes links to online tools and information as well as contact details for staff in national improvement agencies for CPPs that require consultancy and facilitation support.


While the portal is aimed at CPPs in particular, it provides information about key national organisations and relevant reports and research; community organisations and community councils therefore may also benefit from the portal as a resource for further reading.


The Community Planning in Scotland portal can be found at www.cppsupport.scot.
