The aim of the Liberton/Gilmerton Neighbourhood Partnership to achieve an inclusive community

  • Where people are able to participate in community life
  • Have influence over decisions affecting them
  • Are able to take responsibility for their communities
  • Have a right of access to appropriate information and support
  • Have equal access to services and facilities.

Neighbourhood Partnerships bring people together from communities all over the city. We are committed to ensuring that all our work promotes equality and diversity, is accessible to all, and reduces poverty and inequality.  The local priorities actively address social, economic and environmental issues and reflect Edinburgh's vision to achieve a sustainable city.

It is also very important that local residents are involved in the work of the partnership and we would very much welcome your input into any of the action groups.  If you would like to attend or receive regular progress updates on the their work then please contact Hana MacKechnie on 0131 529 6482 or via hana.mackechnie@edinburgh.gov.uk
