Improving outcomes for Clackmannanshire's communities

Published on:


June 2017

The Clackmannanshire Alliance has agreed draft key priorities to ensure that Clackmannanshire is a place where all people can prosper.

We now want to hear your views on these draft priorities via two ongoing online consultations.

Under the Community Empowerment Act the Clackmannanshire Alliance is required to publish a Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP) 2017-2027 which will replace the Clackmannanshire Single Outcome Agreement as well as identifying localities for the purposes of developing Locality Plans for Clackmannanshire by 1st October 2017.

Both plans must be focussed on improving local outcomes with a view to reducing those experiencing the greatest disadvantage and inequality. One set of key priorities relates to the development of the LOIP and Locality Plans.

The Alliance comprises representatives of Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Services, Forth Valley College, NHS Forth Valley, CTSi, Clackmannanshire Business and elected members.

They have identified a number of priorities for Clackmannanshire and have agreed to engage and consult on these over the summer. The consultation is now open and runs until 28th July.

The Alliance is also consulting on its draft priorities for Clackmannanshire's Children's Services Plan 2017 - 2027. A Children's Services Plan is required to be jointly developed with the NHS under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.

The Children's Services Plan is required to set out how services are provided locally in a way which:

  • Best safeguards, supports and promotes the wellbeing and rights of children in the area concerned
  • Ensures that any action to meet needs is taken at the earliest appropriate time and that, where appropriate, action is taken to prevent needs arising
  • Is most integrated from the point of view of recipients
  • Constitutes the best use of available resources

Chair of Clackmannanshire Alliance Councillor Les Sharp said: "The LOIP will mark a new beginning for how we will all work together and in partnership with our communities to ensure that Clackmannanshire is a place where all our people can prosper, no matter their social circumstances. The Children's Services Plan will help services support families, children and young people to achieve the outcomes that all of our children deserve."
