The project brought together people in North Angus (area around Brechin and Edzell) and in East Renfrewshire (area around Eaglesham and Waterfoot), working alongside people and community groups, learning from experience across the 2 areas.
- Built more social connections for people and groups and so improve people’s quality of life
- Provided information about the activities that community groups and other services provide
- Provided events and other ways for community groups to work together more
- Enabled community groups to become more sustainable and continue to benefit people in the future.
The range of ways in which people in this part of Angus have contributed their views and experiences to policy developments and consultations. The main example is the Scottish Government’s policy framework for older people which has a section on rural areas.
Supporting and building partnerships with community groups, voluntary organisations and teams in the public sector roles.
We have good partnerships with other groups and have supported them in their work, such as developments at the Crickety.
