We are extremely fortunate in Aberdeen to have so many community groups making a vital contribution to the City’s people, place and economy. The outbreak of COVID-19 shone a light on the essential work that they do to support people across the City and in most neighbourhoods. Community groups are led by local people, serving those on their doorsteps. The work they do is invaluable and their activity complements the work of statutory public services and third sector organisations working in Aberdeen.
Community Planning Aberdeen (CPA) is a strategic partnership of public, private and third sector organisations in the City, working to deliver the Aberdeen City Local Outcome Improvement Plan. Our vision is of Aberdeen as ‘a place where all people can prosper’, regardless of their background or circumstances. The CPA’s Community Empowerment Group is reaching out to community groups who share our aspirations for making life better for people, families and communities to join us.
The Community Empowerment Network is an opportunity for community groups and organisations to connect with each other and with members of Community Planning Aberdeen’s Community Empowerment Group to stay informed and develop further opportunities for public services, third sector organisations and community groups to work together.
ALL community groups and organisations are welcome! You can sign up for community updates, join a Locality Empowerment Group or Priority Neighbourhood Partnership or become a member fo our citizens panel to find out more.
