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.
There is now wide recognition of the importance of addressing digital inclusion as a priority to reduce social isolation and help improve people’s well-being, including mental health and connectedness.
