Highland & Strathtay Action Partnership

Action Partnerships are an exciting opportunity for local people to get involved in making things better in their communities. Highland and Strathtay is one of five Action Partnerships which between them cover the whole area of Perth and Kinross. The Highland and Strathtay Action Partnership is made up equally of community members, local Councillors and services (Police, Fire, NHS and Council). The Partnership works together to identify local priorities and plans to tackle inequalities, and improve the local area.

Locality Action Plan

Action planning at a local level is a tried and tested way to tackle issues faced by communities. Local people know the issues their communities face and often know the best solutions too. Our Local Action Plan will direct the Action Partnership in the work we do. In developing this Plan we used evidence from the  Highland and Strathtay Story of Place, which contains a wealth of statistical information; information about community assets and other consultations with the community; as well as the local knowledge brought by members of the Action Partnership.
