Public are invited along to the Inverness and Area Community Partnership
The first meeting in public of the Inverness Community Partnership takes place next Wednesday (28 June) when representatives from public agencies, the third sector and voluntary groups get together to work collaboratively with the people of Inverness to focus on priorities and deliver better outcomes for the Partnership area.
The meeting, which takes place from 2pm to 4pm at Hilton Community Centre, is open to the public and anyone interested is encouraged to come along.
Chair of the Inverness Community Partnership, Councillor Graham Ross said: “Our new Community Partnership is going to play a key role in increasing how we work together and more collaboratively with communities. The meeting is being held in public so anyone interested is invited to come along to listen to the discussions. At the end, there will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions.
“The Partnership is not going to be a “talking shop” but will very much be action focused and outcome driven. The public agencies, community groups and individuals taking part all share the goal of wanting to make our communities across Inverness better, more inclusive and accessible places to live and work in.”
At the meeting the partnership will be discussing best ways to communicate with people in the local community, how to make the area a better place for children and adults and discuss a local plan for Merkinch. The representatives from all the groups will also be asked to offer their views on debt and benefits advice projects that have been taking place in the Inverness are and discuss how these may be provided in the future.
