COMMUNITY PLANNING (CP)
Community planning is the process through which public sector organisations work together and with local communities, the business and the voluntary sectors, to identify and solve local problems, improve services, and share resources.
MVA facilitates representation of the voluntary sector in the Community Planning process through the Voluntary Sector Forum (and sub-groups).
MVA represents the sector directly on the Midlothian Community Planning Partnership; Midlothian Community Health Partnership; and other relevant groups, and feeds to and from the Voluntary Sector Forum.
The Community Care Forum Development Worker facilitates representation of service users with regard to Community Care, and in particular, older people and people with disabilities.
Further information on Community Planning is available on the Community Toolkit.
