Empowering local communities is a catchy phrase but how can it be accomplished?
If you are part of a community body that wants to make a participation request, Orkney Islands Council can provide support and assistance to community bodies that are:
- Considering the option of making a participation request.
- In the process of making a participation request.
- Participating in an ‘outcome improvement process’.
What is an Outcome Improvement Process?
A change that results from what organisations provide or deliver – for example, an improved environment and increase in physical activity levels arising from the development of a community park. A participation request must set out the outcome that the community participation body wants to improve’.
To discuss a participation request, please contact Anna Whelan on 01856873535 extension 2160, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
