The Clackmannanshire Alliance is taking forward community planning locally. The Alliance’s role is providing the strategic vision and direction for community planning as well as monitoring the implementation of the new Local Outcomes Improvement Plan (LOIP) and Locality Plans outlined here.
The long term strategic outcomes for Clackmannanshire are:
- Clackmannanshire will be attractive to businesses and people and ensure fair opportunities for all.
- Our families; children and young people will have the best possible start in life.
- Women and girls will be confident and aspirational, and achieve their full potential.
- Our communities will be resilient and empowered so that they can thrive and flourish.
Linked to each of the long term strategic outcomes and 1-5 year outcomes are a set of outcome measures that will be used to drive performance, delivery and decision making in Clackmannanshire. These have been linked to the long term Strategic Outcomes to Scotland’s National Outcomes and the plan will be under review as the National Outcomes are reviewed. This performance framework will form the basis of annual reporting going forward.
Underpinning the strategic outcomes and reflecting on the groups identified as being in particular need in Clackmannanshire three Locality Priority areas have been developed for the partnership. This will enable the Alliance to target efforts and resources on identifying the most vulnerable from inequality and the impact of poverty with specific focus on these priorities. Clackmannanshire Locality Priorities are:
- Improving outcomes for children and young people living in poverty.
- Improving outcomes for women and girls living in Clackmannanshire.
- Improving outcomes for people living in Alloa South and East.
The Alliance meets quarterly and is chaired by the Leader of the Council.
