How does Community Solutions work?

Community Solutions is an effective and active  example of co-production: a true partnership between people, communities and services. 

There are two approaches:

  • The Locality Approach: where local communities and organisations work together to create development plans and direct funding based on local need;
  • The Thematic Approach: larger, North Lanarkshire-wide projects focusing on specific and identified needs, eg community transport; physical activity, hospital discharge support
