We have recently completed work with East Ayrshire Council to deliver 6 community led action plans in Newmilns, Darvel, Fenwick, Logan, Lugar and Cronberry, Mauchline and New Cumnock.
The work was carried out as part of a LEADER funded programme of Action Planning across Ayrshire.
As part of the work we trained and mentored the East Ayrshire Council Community Development Workers in our Community Futures approach to community engagement and community action planning. They then carried out the front line work in each community with some additional hands on support from STAR.
Following the training and support they will now carry on delivering a programme of Community led Action Planning using our Community Futures tools, templates and good practice guidance across all communities in East Ayrshire.
One of the delights of this programmed approach is that the communities will be working in close partnership with the local authority not only to prepare the plans but to make them happen. This will include communities coming together to look at common themes and to take joint action.
