Edinburgh Partnership - Home page

Edinburgh is a thriving, connected, inspired and fair city, where all forms of poverty and inequality are reduced.

Community planning is about how public bodies work together, and with local communities, to design and deliver better services that make a real difference to people's lives, especially those who need the services most. The Edinburgh Partnership is the community planning partnership for the city. It brings together public agencies, third and private sectors with local communities to improve the city, its services and the lives of people who live and work here. 

The Edinburgh Partnership includes representatives from the following organisations:

  • City of Edinburgh Council (one member from each of the political groups including the Council Leader)
  • Police Scotland
  • Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
  • NHS Lothian
  • Scottish Enterprise
  • Edinburgh Integration Joint Board
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Edinburgh College
  • University of Edinburgh
  • Armed Forces
  • Chamber of Commerce
  • Equality and Rights Network (community of interest representative)
  • Edinburgh Association of Community Councils (community of place representative)
  • Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council (Third Sector Interface representative)
  • Edinburgh Affordable Housing Partnership

We want to help create a city where everyone can share in our success; a city where people have enough money to live on, can access jobs, learning or training opportunities, and have a good place to live.
