CLD Support

The West Partnership have been working in collaboration with Youthlink Scotland and Education Scotland to support establishments in evaluation of their partnership working. In the first Cohort (2021-22) we worked with seven partnerships and details of their work can be found by clicking on each of the links below. Our cohort of partnerships involves partners from six of our local authorities.

Coming soon.

Specialist Networks

Specialist Networks

Areas of focus:

Specialist Networks are where groups of practitioners collaborate to share experiences and expertise. This can result in the development of resources or professional learning opportunities.  The Specialist Networks promote the sharing of knowledge and expertise across local authorities promoting cross sector collaboration.

The Families & Communities Network aims to identify, share and develop best practices which support families living in poverty, build community capacity, increase parental engagement and improve inequity.

The Families and Communities Network is also responsible for developing systems that empower young people in participating in the West Partnership.
