In November and December the eight Community Committees agree the community priorities for their area for the next financial year. These are then shared with partners to assist with business planning.
Community priorities reflect how local people want services to help them to improve their lives, rather than a comprehensive assessment of their needs and aspirations.
Each community committee has developed its priorities on:
- local people's understanding, including information about needs and service outcomes
- the results of agencies' engagement with communities and service users
- Neighbourhood Partnership Boards' advice about the priorities
2012 community priorities:
- Claremont and Weaste
- East Salford
- Irlam and Cadishead
- Little Hulton and Walkden
- Ordsall and Langworthy
- Worsley and Boothstown
These documents are the tools used by Community Committees and Neighbourhood Partnership Boards to agree how local residents can be engaged in the delivery, to identify and remedy any gaps and to form the basis for monitoring. The delivery of the community priorities will be the responsibility of those agencies who accept the lead for each action and progress will be regularly reported to the Community Committee and Neighbourhood Partnership Board.
The priorities have also been matched with the Partnership priority objectives and actions, plans for the thematic partnerships and other strategic partnerships within Salford to show how the needs identified by communities have been considered.
