Innovate and Improve

The Innovate and Improve Programme aims to build improvement knowledge and capacity of staff at all levels across the Community Planning Partnership. The programme ensures a coordinated approach is taken to support colleagues and communities across Community Planning Aberdeen in the sharing of knowledge, skills and expertise to use improvement methodology and other improvement tools.  This support is critical to the delivery of the Local Outcome Improvement Plan 2016-26 and Locality Plans. 

People are at the heart of our improvement journey and it is through them that real change is achieved.  The Innovate and Improve Programme is intended to offer an effective platform for staff and communities across the partnership to tackle the challenges ahead by growing capacity for change and improvement.

Model for Improvement

The Model for Improvement is a framework designed to develop, test and implement changes that lead to improvement. The Model is used and endorsed by the Scottish Government and is credited with bringing about improvements in the NHS.

It is being rolled out across Aberdeen City Council and Community Planning Aberdeen partners to create a city-wide culture of quality improvement and improve outcomes to the people of Aberdeen.

You can also find useful learning tools and resources to support you and your team’s improvement journey. If you have any feedback on the workshops or resources, please email us at
