Local Community Plan 2014-17


The Forth Neighbourhood Partnership brings together the Community, City of Edinburgh Council, Police Scotland, NHS Lothian, Scottish Fire & Rescue and our local Voluntary Sector organisations to coordinate
services and help make the neighbourhood a positive place to live and work in.

Much of our work is managed and supported through a Local Community Plan, which was created by asking local people of
all ages what is important to them and what can help improve the
quality of life in Forth.

This has identified four main priorities for us to work on
between now and 2017. Each of these will be taken forward
by working together with local residents, partners and organisations.

Our priorities

Positively engage and support young people

  • We will work with Total Craigroyston to develop the proven 'YouthTalk' project which involves gathering the views of as many young people as possible about local services and then support positive change to support young people into positive activity

Increase opportunities for all to live healthy lifestyles

  • We will work with NHS Lothian and other key partners and organisations to identify and introduce new and exciting opportunities for our residents of all ages to become more active and to engage in healthy lifestyles

Improve the way we engage with and support our communities

  • We will work with Community Councils, key community groups and organisations to identify new and innovative ways to better communicate with our residents.  We will also look to establish better support to those residents that give their valuable time and find ways to encourage others to get involved.

Improving employment opportunities - especially for young people

  • We will work with local and citywide developments to help our young people and interested adults into training and/or employment.  We will also look to build on existing agreements to support apprenticeships and identify opportunities for Social Enterprise schemes.
