This series of notebooks provides information, guidance and support to Community Planning Partnership (CPP) Board members.


Developed by the Improvement Service in consultation with CPPs, the notebooks are designed to meet the varied needs and roles of different CPP Board members. They are likely to be of most use to Board members who are new to the role rather than those with more experience.


Notebook 1: Overview of Community Planning

The first notebook will help you understand the changing context within which CPPs are operating, the expectations for community planning and what that means for CPP Board members.

Notebook 2: How to be an Effective Board and Board Member

This provides an overview of the roles and responsibilities of CPP Boards and Board members and the skills and behaviours required. It also describes the support available to help CPPs meet these duties.
