The Connected Communities service

We promote and deliver the council’s community empowerment aims. We work collaboratively with other council services and community organisations, including Area Partnerships, community councils and voluntary organisations - to make a difference and help reduce inequalities.

Connected Communities teams

The Connected Communities teams will deliver the East Lothian Partnership’s outcomes – prosperous, community-minded, fair – and the Council’s strategic objectives relating to growth, growing our communities, people, economy and capacity. We promote community empowerment, capacity building and enable greater community resilience.
