The Place approach

The East Dunbartonshire Community Planning Partnership is committed to reducing inequality and to targeting resources where they are needed the most.  As a result the ‘place approach’ is being used to work within those areas which experience the most inequality.  This is a particular way of working with communities which moves away from providing services to alleviate local issues with tailored solutions, making local people central to the process. 

Using local and national data, the three areas which have been identified as ‘place areas’ are Hillhead, Lennoxtown, and Auchinairn.  Led by East Dunbartonshire Council, the Community Planning Partnership has begun the process of working with local communities to improve provision and give community led change in these areas.
