More About Us

Photo of The Shore, Leith Neighbourhood Partnerships are a way for organisations to work together with local people to improve public services and quality of life. They are a key part of the governance arrangements for local public services, enabling the Council and other service providers to focus their resources on the priorities that matter to communities.

The partners involved in the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership are the City of Edinburgh Council, Police Scotland, Forth Ports PLC, Housing Associations, Voluntary Organisations in Leith Together, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the North East Edinburgh Local Health Partnership and Local Community Councils.

The Leith Neighbourhood Partnership puts listening to local people at the heart of their work. Community Councillors represent local people as full members of the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership Board.
