Francesca Ainsworth, Sophie Humphries and Ally Macleod from Aberdeenshire Council highlight their plans for working with What Works Scotland
Aberdeenshire is delighted to have been chosen as a case study area and welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with What Works Scotland.
The sheer size of Aberdeenshire alone creates numerous challenges to the design and delivery of both public and third sector services. Our initial bid focused on a joined up model of local service planning and partnership working which has proven successful in Aberdeenshire.
To drive further success, the three specific challenges we will address are road safety and prevention, local community planning and health and social care integration. We will most certainly be looking to others to learn from their experiences and, in turn, hope that the work we are embarking on in Aberdeenshire will be of benefit to other areas of Scotland as well.
