Clackmannanshire is a wonderful place to live but some communities and groups of people have struggled for generations with poverty and health inequalities. This has been due to many factors including a lack of employment options, limitations of travel, and adverse family experiences. Local Community Planning Partners (CPP) are committed to helping those people who persistently struggle to make ends meet including women, and those with disabilities and mental health who have limits to their ability to work.
The Tackling Inequalities Group (TIG) is a sub group of the Community Wellbeing and Safety Partnership (CWSP) and is made up of a group of frontline managers in health, housing and welfare benefits, third sector organisations and community workers. This group aims to help cascade information out to relevant residents and other staff working across Clackmannanshire, to ensure that local people have access to the information and supports they need to improve their financial situation.
The main themes covered by the TIG are listed below and relevant links and information is provided. If you wish to receive up to date information from our Tackling Inequalities Bulletin which aims to be bi-monthly, please subscribe by emailing Lesley Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
