Working together for the future

We hope by working together with you we can help to build vibrant, resourceful communities, where people feel supported by their family, neighbours and local services. We want to:

  • Make sure that everything we do in health and social care is guided by you
  • Build new relationships to take a fresh approach to health and social care for local people
  • Work with you to tackle some of the inequalities experienced in North Ayrshire
  • Improve the health outcomes of local people

Communities are at the heart of our decision making – we want your involvement! 

Locality planning forums – engaging in local communities

North Ayrshire is home to over 136,000 people. People in different local communities experience life differently, with a wide range of contrasting health and social care needs and outcomes for local people.

North Ayrshire’s health and social care locality planning forums tell us about what’s important in each locality:

The locality planning forums are community representatives and people who work in health and social careThe forum members talk to local people about health and social care issues and priorities. They use local knowledge of what works and what can be improved, and to understand what people need and want. They make recommendations for improvements to local health and social care services.

The forums work closely with North Ayrshire Community Planning Partnership (CPP) locality partnerships.

To share your views with us, or be more involved in decision making, email us whatmatterstoyou@north-ayrshire.gov.uk

We would love to hear from you!
