The next network event will be held on Thursday 28 July 22 from 6-8pm via zoom. Please click below to book your place.
Community Planning Aberdeen is revising its Community Empowerment Strategy and we want to find out what success looks like for you. We are all citizens and it is likely that at some point we have all identified something in the community we would like to change. Perhaps you have knowledge and experience of working with community members to take control of making that change happen. Or perhaps you have felt unsure how to go about it or unable to make a difference. Over the next few weeks the Community Empowerment Group would like to capture your thoughts, experiences and ideas about how communities can be more empowered. There are two ways you can do this:
1. Post your ideas on our online whiteboard (click below) before the end of July.
2. Sign up for the next Community Empowerment Network meeting taking place via zoom on Thursday 28th of July at 6pm – we would love to see you there!
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 a forum for community groups and organisations to connect with each other and with members of the 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, explore our website and register for the next network event to find out more.
