The Trust’s Embedding Wellbeing in Northern Ireland project is providing financial and in-kind support to the Community Planning Partnerships working in the following local authority areas to implement a local wellbeing outcomes approach:

  • Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council;
  • Derry City and Strabane District Council; and
  • Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council.

The Community Planning Partnerships are receiving support from the Trust on the two themes of co-production and shared leadership.

This report, written by Community Places, outlines the range of models which are used across the UK and Ireland to ensure representation of the Community and Voluntary Sector (CVS) in Community Planning structures, and learning from an online workshop based on the report held on 25 August 2020, organised and facilitated by Community Places.
