East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership Strategic Planning Groups

Want to get involved

There are various ways in which you can be involved in these groups.

Voluntary sector representation on the seven strategic groups is being coordinated through Strive. They are developing a system which will provide a pool of nominated voluntary sector organisations that the groups can draw upon to ensure voluntary sector representation. Strive will also develop a system whereby outcomes and key messages from the work of the strategic groups will be disseminated to the wider voluntary sector. Voluntary sector organisations who are not members of Strive will be invited to join groups by partnership officers.

Service-user representation on the seven strategic groups is being coordinated through East Lothian Community Care Forum (ELCCF). As well as supporting individual service users to attend groups, ELCCF will also feed back and link with wider service user groups.

Carer representation on the seven strategic groups is being coordinated through Care of East Lothian (CoEL). As well as supporting individual carers to attend groups CoEL will also feedback and link with wider carer groups.

Any voluntary sector organisations, service users and carers who are still involved in the previous planning groups will be contacted by officers within the partnership to discuss their future involvement.

Should you be interested in becoming involved in these groups, details of whether there are spaces on the group and how to get involved can be obtained through:
