Torbay is getting local people involved in local decision-making through a growing network of Community Partnerships.
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 16 Community Partnerships in Torbay – 9 in Torquay, 5 in Paignton and 2 in Brixham one of which is working with Brixham Town Council.
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 Councillor, raise an issue with the police, find out what is going on in their neighbourhood, or just to link up with other residents.
Supported by the Torbay Strategic Partnership the Community Partnerships are recognised by all the statutory agencies in Torbay including Torbay Council, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, Torbay Care Trust, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue – the list goes on. All the major Housing Associations also have representatives working with the Partnerships. This enables people’s concerns to be dealt with promptly and effectively.
