Each Community Planning Partnership is required to develop a Local Outcomes Improvement Plan (LOIP). The plan should be:
In addition to the LOIP, the partnership must also identify smaller areas within the local authority area which experience the poorest outcomes and prepare and publish locality plans to improve outcomes on agreed priorities for these communities. Active community participation is again a core element of the locality planning process.
The Improvement Service (IS) is the national improvement organisation for local government in Scotland.
Our purpose is to help councils and their partners to improve the health, quality of life and opportunities of all people in Scotland through community leadership, strong local governance and the delivery of high quality, efficient local services.
Through a series of principles, the IS works to promote improvement in local government and among its partners to support them improve outcomes and reduce the outcome gaps within populations and within areas.
The IS delivers a range of products and services that support CPPs to build their capacity to deliver the public service reform agenda.
The IS has a non-partisan role to support all elected members in Scotland.
The Improvement Services produces a series of newsletters on a range of subjects, including myaccount, elected members, tellmescotland as well as the main IS newsletter. Subscribe on this page.
