Launch of the CommUnity Agreement

The North Lanarkshire CommUnity Agreement has officially been launched!

The North Lanarkshire CommUnity Agreement sets out our shared, core values and guiding principles to strengthen how residents, the Community and Voluntary Sector (CVS), public sector and business sector work together for a better North Lanarkshire. This includes better joint working to deliver our Plan for North Lanarkshire, nine Local Outcome Improvement Plans and linked strategies on key issues.

Councillor Kenneth Stevenson, Convener of the Communities Committee stated, “The North Lanarkshire CommUnity Agreement demonstrates our clear commitment to improving the effectiveness of the way in which community groups co-operate here. This agreement is the culmination of extensive community engagement, involving over 500 participants from various backgrounds.”

The engagement included online surveys, community-based focus groups, and a collaborative “design day” voices representing every aspect of North Lanarkshire that contributed to the agreement.

Maddy Halliday, former CEO of Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire, said: “Both VANL and CVSPG are delighted that we have worked collectively with volunteers and public sector colleagues to develop the CommUnity agreement and are fully committed to supporting effective implementation.

The Agreement was officially launched at an event in Motherwell on the 29th of April 2024. It will be reviewed every 6 months.
