Community Partnerships provide an opportunity for people who live or work in the different parts of Torbay to discuss issues of common concern, influence the way in which services are provided and improve their local area. There are Community Partnerships for every ward in Torbay, some working in partnership with the adjacent ward, and others with more than one per ward. But what does this mean? It’s about getting local people together to decide what is important to them and what needs improving in their area.
They are a one-stop shop for local people to ask questions of their local Councillors, find out what is going on in their neighbourhood, or just to link up with other residents. Each group holds regular public meetings open to anyone who lives or works in the area, but there are also many other ways residents can engage with their Community Partnership. There is a steering group for each area run usually by two residents – one who acts as a Chairperson and one as a Secretary and they can be called or emailed with issues, or if no contact details are available call the Community Partnership Office on 01803 212638. Many groups also have facebook pages which are updated regularly.
